Tree Blur (November, 1998)

Another one taken on the Via Ocean train to Montreal from Halifax. I believe this was somewhere in New Brunswick.

This reminds me very much of certain early 20th-century artworks, particularly this one by Mondrian which, if I remember rightly, was one of a series in which he abstracted the form of the tree to a greater degree with each successive image. As usual, I am interested in the effects of exposure time and the ways in which certain lines remain "clear" while others blur, creating a sense of movement and depth.
