Light is a passage way Leading to new adventures They remind me of the possibilities The opportunities that may come my way. They are symbolic. Surrounded by the darkness that could not succeed. Light bleeds through Degrading darkness to the simplicity of a frame.
There is something about blinding light, That stirs my spirituality. There is something rewarding about sight, That satisfies curiosity. Through dark passage ways To be enlightened by light Which may strain your sight, But through blinding light reveals remarkable truth.
My eye has been trained By someone far greater and true My vision seems filtered Monochromatic, no hues. Blacks and whites honor geometry and the lessons they teach; Simplicity in lines, angles, and space in between. Absent of verbose visuals No human figures for scale I subconsciously create a graphic image Two-dimensional from what is real.
Doorways and windows Leave the room for things to come and go. Reflections and refraction, Creating something new from the original.
I seek them Discover I attempt to organize what nature presents Breaking rules or embracing clichés I make it my own The moment I connect. Light is something I seem to collect, Photographically I preserve what I cannot get.
Artists have rumored about the light found in the South of France. I recognize it’s quality From the surfaces it befriends. The cobblestone The valley Ancient ruins and foreign lands Muted colors to stain glass windows That share stories of civilizations once lived.
Past lives and lives yet to be lived The light I observe is hope I bask in Wisdom Glory Magnificence It’s infinite possibilities Feeds my optimism.
My relationship with light is an affair that has no end. Every time we meet I learn something new or I’m reminded of what we share. A successful image is a compliment. It’s a blessing I don’t care to comprehend. When I photograph light lends me it’s hand. We walk, we talk, we embrace even when night falls. All in my head? I suppose. But these photographs are proof of our love affair, exposed.
