I like making liminal images; i.e., those details at the edge or space between there, now, and the future, knowing that all things change with time. I also like exploring how they look in B&W.
The first image shows you why Homewood at Plum Creek is still cutting down trees. That image is a cross-section of one that was cut down yesterday … before it fell. Once cut, it was quite evident that it was hollow. It was one of the ash trees killed by the ash borers. You just have to wonder how many haven’t been cut down yet, that will fall but hopefully not on one of us.
While out walking this morning one of the staffers stopped and asked me if I had gotten any new cameras lately. I told her no, but that I have been thinking about another. It is probably a good thing that the new Monochrome Pentax camera is not available yet, but I have my name on the list. It isn’t likely that I will get a camera that only makes monochrome B&W images; but, there are times I wish I had one. In the meanwhile, I’m going to keep exploring monochrome images with the Pentax camera I do have.
Super, beautiful photos
