I feel slightly ashamed of my prolonged absence from my blog. I say slightly because I'm sure that the 5 of you that are following me didn't really notice the absence. Anyway, here I am!
It would seem that the last post I made with the photos gave me a bit
of a photography bug because I can't seem to stop taking pictures. Since I last wrote I have acquired no less than 5 different Polaroid cameras and 3, 35mm film cameras. Oh golly gee!
These are two of my favorites. There are many many more but I'm feeling like holding out on you. Build some tension, maybe? Or at least convince myself that I'm building tension. Honestly I think maybe I'm just lazy and this seems like a good way to get a few posts out of what should be one.
These were shot with a Polaroid Spectra. The film was expired which would account for the dull color.
The first photo reminds me of a dream I once had. It was just a single image of a crystal blue ocean at low tide. I don't know how many of you have seen this before but there are places where at low tide you can wade out into the water, never going any deeper than your knees, for miles. This was that kind of ocean, and it went so far without interruption that you could hardly tell where the sky began and the ocean ended. Just a little ways off shore there was a swing made from a single plank of wood and two ropes. Just an ordinary swing sitting over the ocean. When I looked up I could see that the ropes went on forever.
