by moonlight

  1. i'm guessing it's snow but it looks like sand.
    sand is better for writing on, with your finger or a twig; words too fragile to be read over and over. what shadows write must be even more fragile.

    a wonderful light and a pattern that play tricks on you. for crying out loud, i even see a cross! :)

  2. this unsettled me, andreas, because even knowing it wasn't moonlight, it was in fact only a moment before the other shot of shadows the same day, i was still driven to say moonlight. but it is snow, not sand. either way, crystalline and catches the light and throws it back.

    we watched The Others with the children this weekend. this shot had the same sort of foreboding creeping i felt in the movie.

    thank you for coming by so often. i laugh. mostly just you and robert who come, but then this is mostly a self indulgence, this place.
