even with a shift of dimension


volume does not dissipate

  1. This image is quite lovely-the tension of the bird exiting, the wide grey space above a very calm scene...very nice!

  2. thank you walter. i take great pleasure in having to scroll through the space of the sky (and the water in the photo posted before this one). it means something more to me to have to put even this puny effort into crossing the distance.

  3. something so simple speaks volumes, and then the immensity of it, and then the thought that it's all so distant, and then we can never touch everything or even should, and then... oh hell it's all too much - or too little

  7. That scrolling down is the heart of the exercise. You know I love your verticals, Erin -- taking advantage of the format, turning a necessity into an instrument. Tremendous meditation on space and silence. The sail seeming so innocent, blithe, unaware life has taken wing and is leaving the frame... just as we walked in. And what can the faintest moon in the world do to save things now?
