scale

its not often that light, location and time conspire to create a little gem of surrealism, i'm not referring to the contrived surrealism of the movement, but that of life itself which is very much present in photography - Sontag says - surrealism lies at the heart of the photographic enterprise: in the very creation of a duplicate world, of a reality in the second degree, narrower but more dramatic than the one perceived by natural vision - it is photography that has best shown how to juxtapose the sewing machine and the umbrella.
