Looking at life through nano-coated lenses

Posts tagged ‘reflections’

I am drawn to windows, doors, and other objects that define a boundary between what’s on one side of them and what’s on the other. We instinctively tend to respect such boundaries, finding distinctions between each of the two sides. For example, we break up structures into “interior” and “exterior” facets, each with their own distinct natures. By the same token, in our daily lives we tend to break up existence into the inner world of our psyche and what surrounds us “out there,” separate and apart from us.

However, these distinctions are products of our minds. In reality everything is interrelated, and how we see one side is inextricably related to and influenced by how we see the other. Sometimes we have the opportunity to perceive an aspect of this interconnectedness. My goal in this project is to discover and share these opportunities.

I recently had photos included in two more shows. “Nature Is Nigh” was included in the Mpls Photo Center‘s “Abstracted” show.

Meanwhile, three of my photos were included in the Troy Photo Center‘s Members’ Show. These three, which included “Electrophobic Trees,” are part of a series I’ve been working on called “Where Man & Nature Met.”

Just learned that my photo “Window In The Leaves” was selected “Best In Show” at this year’s Members Show. Wow! I have to confess that being in an “all media” show, I’m a little surprised a photograph won. Guess that’s a reflection of my memories from the 1970s when there was a big issue about whether photography was actually an art. Apparently that question is no longer an issue. Good news!
