Rock Collage

I love it when this happens: rock close-ups/abstracts spanning seven years come together in a single collage. It would be a bit of a stretch to call it “R/G/B” but the colors are distinct enough between the three photos – and they’re united by the orange in each of them.

I wonder what it is with groupings of three. The majority of my “Small Sets” are compilations of three images – it’s a sweet spot, just right.  I label them “triptych” but I know that, strictly speaking, they’re not actually triptychs – they don’t have a singular visual appearance together, so “collage” is more accurate, perhaps? Anyway…

I created a ready-made collage from these three photos, it is available as a single print in my store: Rock Collage Triptych. The individual images are also available as prints: “Quartz Wood“, “Blue Slate“, “Mask/Lion“.

  1. If you want to make something memorable put it in threes. There’s something about threes, maybe the pattern, the rhythm, the symmetry? Many plays, movies, symphonies are in three acts/movements. Then there’s “Father, Son, Holy Ghost”, the “A,B,Cs” (not ABC, Ds), “Faith, Hope, Charity”, “Duty, Honor, Country”, etc. all have the 3 rhythm and they’re easily ingrained in our memory. When I was in IT I found it pretty easy to remember IP addresses and I think it was because of their grouping in 4 sets of 3 numbers.

    • Interesting. I found IP addresses difficult to remember – not the simple ones but when they had three digits in all four numbers. And well, now it’s IPv6 – I wonder who can remember those hexadecimal monsters… :-P
