How It Be


Purple skies and the future.

It’s not a Sunday picture,

Well.

It is. Sorta.

A long time back I use to publish “Experimental Sunday.” It was a sort of predictable Sunday feature when I posted images that I was tinkering with, or worse, making unrecognizable. Like this one.

I call it this picture, “Lonely Future.” It’s about all the constant regulatory roll backs of the current United States leadership. No people. No cars. Just weirdly colored skies.

This image didn’t start out this way. I wasn’t intending to make a political statement. I just kept starting. Stopping. Starting again. Pretty soon. The starts took over the stops. And, here we are.

Sort of like real life.

I suppose you could call it an accidental picture. People talk about an intentional life. Heh! Good luck with that. After all, “they” say the history is just a collection of accidents. “They” might be right. Think about that.

This picture might be a collection of mistakes. I followed it wherever the colors and applications took me. I always do that. I want the picture to teach me about it. I don’t want to exert my influence. That’s just about the same way that I make my best pictures in the field. You know. The old saying.

“Don’t take the picture. Let the picture take you.”

And, that’s the trick.
