Long ago and far away. Ten years. 1,000 miles.
New Mexico is in my head. I was able to put it away for a while. OnOne archived all the work it could find on my computer’s hard drive and on one of my portables.
It found images that were “lost.”
They were not necessarily lost in my archives so much as being lost in my brain. Once I started seeing them again I looked at many of them in amazement.
It was like looking at them in a dream. I can’t remember the circumstance of making them although I do remember the pictures. Clearly.
And, speaking of dreams, this morning’s dream was very cool.
I was walking in a long tunnel like the kind that are made for mines. Everything was dark. I arrived at an open place. Everything was glowing. I got in line with the rest of the workers. We were handed five gallon buckets and sent to a dark fountain.
We dipped our buckets in the fountain until they were filled with multi-color fluid. It was stunningly beautiful. The colors were bright, they jumped in and out of the bucket, they sparkled.
What a show.
Then I woke up.
Pictures at an exhibition. April is going to be all over the place.
Some photographs will be old. Some will be my kind of art. Some will be from the project. Some will be from a survey of other ideas.
This picture from the mountains of New Mexico kicks off the month.
I decided to tone it down and make it look like a dream.
All of the work was done in Snapseed. I could have done a little more in OnOne, but I was satisfied with my work as it stood.
So, this is spring.
