brick by brick
I have built
offering a glimpse
for those willing
I created this image & verse last year, part of the series I called "Differentiation". (more on this series below)
Our photo club is having a group exhibit this April. I think I will be showing this image as my contribution. As part of the submission, I am required to write a 100 word (maximum) "story" about the image.
As I ponder just what exactly to write about, I gave some thought to why I find windows so intriguing.
Several years ago I took a creative photography course. This involved assignments and we had to take in two printed images for evaluation during every session. After a few sessions, another participant turned to me and said "you have a thing for windows". Well, yes I do. I spent many years recycling old wooden windows, adding stained glass, and selling them. Now I just take photographs of windows that I find interesting.
But there is something more about this image that I need to find the words to describe. I have to send in my "story" by March 9th.
Does the image say anything to you?
To create the final image, I removed objects from the two side windows and took away reflections of hydro wires. I also added a subtle texture layer which you can see in the windows if you look closely. Here is the original photograph:
Differentiation is the series I created in 2018 and continues the theme of emotional healing by creating photographic art paired with verse. There are over 30 images in this series, varying from dark and brooding to light and inspirational.
