Insects, diseases, dying, dead, gone, like a lot of other things. Time to replenish the earth with specimens that are more suited for the future environment. Men and women as well as trees.
I’m trying to get back into the mindset of making pictures, without going anywhere.
This image reminded me of the old days when I was an Aerospace Engineer.
I made this image looking out the window from my computer chair this morning.
It is a gloomy morning as I write this. I had planned to take the week off from posting anything or making any pictures as I thought about some major changes with my photography. My thinking hasn’t been going well since my changes are dependent upon going off campus and finding other things to photograph.
With the very slow, extremely cautiously slow release of the constraints on my coming and goings, I can’t make any changes until it is all over and I go out and try some different things. Unfortunately, the economic and social aftermath of the pandemic in conjunction with the demonstrations and the woeful response of the government to all of the above, I am so depressed that my photography might dry up to nothing. To counter these feelings I decided that I had to get a camera out and make something … anything to counter my depressing thoughts.
With that in mind, I decided to do some more experimenting with a style of B&W that I had been considering for the possible printing of a small book or magazine. That is what I did with these pictures that I made while looking out the window.
PS, WordPress is changing the editor and I need to learn how to utilize it properly; i.e. to make things look like my previous posts. I don’t like it so far.
