Winding metallic lines meet boldly.

Waves catch mid days light,

Holding their form,

Anticipating the curious.

Eyes still standing,

Encase the surrogate womb,

Sealing deep wells,

Impressing your mind.

Bold eyes search for signs of life

Combing the waters glowing canopy

Brazen and banded

They seek hidden prey

Killing the meek amongst the reef

This world above meets the aquatic below

As the seaweed grows

Young loners meet their pale day

Destined to sleep while killers play

Believe it or not, this is actually a picture of a piece of home decor that I had received as a Christmas gift two years ago. Just when I think I can’t get any more photos from this object, a fresh idea emerges.

Colorful bands of light emerge from the shadows

Seeking jewels of equal brilliance

Apart they shine

Together, they creatively conquer the word

Everyone remembers special individuals in our lives that used their talents to both support us and give generously to others. This particular group of colorful objects was discovered together. They add to each others visual interest, but hold a certain fascination and purpose of their own.

What does these objects remind you of?

One arrow faces north, the other south.

The sudden urge to yield to the hearts desires are first monitored, then fastidiously controlled.

A desperate twin and its polar opposite are brought together with a tight hinge.

There is no hint of neutrality or a reluctant peace treaty, only a trusty handle to ensure cooperation.

My mother bought two of these objects to help us clean and organize the house. One unusually dull afternoon, I turned to look at the hearth. The object was leaning clumsily to one side. At first, I thought that I was going to get a work break with this newly discovered find, a one shot photo. However, I had to take several shots before I was satisfied with the results. Finally, I chose this photo for the unveiling. Its design reminded me of many strained relationships (they may be work relationships or personal relationships) that occur because the people involved have opposing views on how things should be done. The top arrows represent one side the bottom arrows the other. The arrow designs on both the top and the bottom are both black and white in order to represent the concept that contained within extreme forms of thought, there are still ideas which contradict one another, therefore making the arguments of each side less valid. Neither side would give except that ultimately they are working towards the same goal. This cause, (represented by the hinge), binds them together; they are forced to work out their differences. This is achieved with the handle. In this design, it is placed strategically in the middle like a referee. The handle ( person or organization representing the handle) carries the two opposing sides, helping them to work out their differences until they have their next inevitable disagreement. Without this handle, their would be no achievement or progress.

Warm hues float beneath my skin.

Its transparency catches the sunlight

Our future suspended in a twist of time

When pride is broken

We meet again

I took this abstract photograph when we visited a flooring store in our quest to find a porcelain tile that would simulate the look of exotic tiger wood. There were many textures, colors and brands of tile and flooring. While none of their designs appealed to us, I still managed to leave the store with this colorful, fascinating gem.

Wishing you all a wonderfully creative weekend!

Ordinary Objects That Look Like Secret Doorways

An iron door emerges.

Imagination reaches out to touch it’s textured surface

It is an entryway to a sunken treasure, an inter-dimensional portal to another universe.

When I took this photo, the object above was just sitting there as the light hit it. I traveled around the object shooting its surface from different angles, but it took me awhile to settle on the photo above. The other photos were interesting, but they did not have the curious quality that gave this photo it’s story. When an object begins to tell it’s story because it suggests something other than what it actually is, then emotion becomes attached to that inanimate object. We begin to relate to it in other ways, making a variety of associations and then eventually bringing them back to ourselves. Not everyone sees the same thing in an object that has been photographed.

What does this object remind you of?

What does it mean to you?

 Moving gracefully toward earth

 Shapes form rhythmic waves

 A resplendent home at the waters edge

 

It’s always a challenge hunting for new and exciting surfaces to photograph. You can’t take every surface home to properly light it. Sometimes it’s in front of you for only a brief moment before it disappears from view. If you hesitate, you lose the shot. If you don’t snap up an item on sale, someone else will buy it. Then you might never get the chance to bring it into your studio or workspace. In life as in art, timing is often a large part of success. When I spotted this item at one of our local stores, I had only a few minutes to take the picture before employees and customers started to wonder what the heck I was doing. I also had to contend with the stores harsh lighting which briefly stole my confidence before I summed up the courage to shoot despite the obstacles.

This photograph is a sample from my New Spring Cleaning Series that deals with removing from our lives harmful thoughts, habits or individuals that are detrimental to our emotional, psychological and spiritual health. The repetitive rhythms and colors are meant to generate a sense of calm and awareness. I used cleaning supplies to create the first part of this series which provides a pun on it’s title.

A virulent muse spreads her flesh and desire throughout the factory. As the room spins, steam bubbles, burdened by the summer heat, hitch a ride on the backs of their spiritless, affluent neighbors. Sealed neatly inside this commercial package, society groans while the youth quake.

 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
