      First thing I thought was Escher. Did you rotate it 180 deg?

    3. mingthein 22 months ago | reply

      I thought Escher was famous for his never-ending impossible stairs. Yes, rotated 180 deg.

      I think his puddle woodcut is actually called Puddle. Someone did a Lego version of Ascending and Descending (the impossible stairs) - ripper. I love Monet but don't actually know enough to get the reference so I threw in M.C.

      What's bokeh called when it's in the *foreground*?

      Manual focus to the rescue!

      Ah, I didn't know that - will have to look it up. I saw the lego stairs - agree, they're awesome (being something of a lego fan myself).

      The Monet is called 'water lilies' - and he did a few variations on this theme, notably getting warmer as he got older because of cataracts.

      No idea, I've always called it foreground bokeh...

      Your photo brings me to a thought - how difficult would it be to make a woodcut with bokeh? Is it even possible?

    7. mingthein 22 months ago | reply

      I think it'd be impossible - how on earth would you do the soft edges? Maybe it'd be a sponge cut? I think we need an artist for a more definitive opinion...

      How does this not have more comments? Beautiful and great seeing ability to catch the shot.

      Not many monet fans perhaps?
