Three enigmas

Some photographs resist simple interpretation, even when their ostensible subject matter (ice, sand, rock…) is clear. Sometimes it’s possible to imagine a figure or a face, but even the most fertile imagination runs up against limits now and again, and one is tugged into surreal territory. Here are three such that I’m puzzling over, from a trip to Drift Inn a few days ago:


18i2023
almost Arcimboldoesque, a right-facing head ?

18i2026

? a demonic cocktail shaker ? a flamingo executing a jeté ?

18i2027
scale indeterminate: ? a view outward toward the Cosmos? satellite view of a caldera?
