Above the world.
When I saw these two recent photos, I am reminded of several “swing” images you have shared over the last few years. They would make a great chronological series….from color to black and white to color to black and white…..from back to forth…..from child to child. It is a sweet way to paint how your children are growing up. 🙂 I love the photos. I admire the photography.
Thank you Karen. I was thinking about the other “Swing” images, and about the unrelenting march of time. I get a little sad when I let my mind wander in that direction; it’s one of the reasons I rarely go back to view my old photographs.
I love this. The only nitpick I have is that the sky isn’t dark enough. But the perfect shot – the Holy Grail – is somewhere in the future, and we will take it when we least expect it.
Thanks. The sky has been blown to oblivion because the most important element (our fair subject) was in the shade when this was taken. Yet, where you find a nitpick, I find immense satisfaction in the simple – almost abstract – image that emerges from the loss of background detail. It’s like a visual haiku.
Perhaps no one ever reaches the so-called Holy Grail, but occasionally – as in this case – I can genuinely say it is possible for me to find my personal photographic Nirvana.
