I like the caption better than I like the headline. Okay, the title. The base image is of the past.
It’s a long story, but many, many years ago, my Dad thought that he wanted to work as a watch maker. Like me, he lacked the patience to do that kind of meticulous work. That’s why I’m not a studio photographer.
I don’t fuss over every detail. I let the picture find me. I let the picture tell me how to make it. I’ve made some fine pictures. And, sometimes I wonder what I was thinking. Or, not thinking.
I’ll tell you more about the picture over there in the right hand column.
Finding those tool images felt just about right. I’ve been going through a journey through my past lately. That may account for some of my dreams. It certainly is a coming to terms with things I did or didn’t do long ago.
You know, my own reckoning.
Weird scenes inside the goldmine. That could be this picture.
As I was writing this I turned on a Spotify play list called 1969’s Top 200 Albums.
It’s a strange mix. It goes from some very eclectic jazz to songs by the Doors and Beatles.
“This is the End” by The Doors started playing. That’s where “weird scenes” line came from.
Makes good sense. This picture is a pretty weird scene.
There’s all sorts stuff going on in it. All made by the magic of layering four pictures.
There’s the tools. There are leaves. There is a tree. And finally some flowers all tucked into the picture somewhere.
This is one of those pictures that comes under the heading of I don’t know what was thinking. This time that’s a positive because I kind of like it.
