So i'll continue to take photos, abstracts and mix the meaningful and the meaningless together in a way that is in tune with my heart's beat, and see what progresses.
This is a stone sculpture at Beaverlake north of Asheville. I actually had to get 'inside' the sculpture and look up to get this shot, but the object d'art is intended to be interacted with as far as i can tell.
insects are so other. hard to think of them as related to us, and closer to us than the tree they are eating. weird breathing methods, bones on the outside, adults with no mouthparts, multifaceted eyes, tongues on the ends of their feet, chemical signals, responses and defenses... it's all so amazing physically and spiritually.
the truth is i see many things as areas of light or color or shades of things and frequently have no emotional attachment to them. I only partially compose usually with not much intent to a subject matter, only framing to keep out the unwanted and emphasize some part that, for the moment, i'm interested in. In this case the texture on the wall, warm and contrasted to the cold blue of space to black.

seems i'm always looking down. Or at least my camera with the heavy lens (sony F828) is always pointing down when around my neck and i frequently have the LCD on - sometimes i see my next mission in this shot - especially those 'standing there' ones.
