I had a pretty abstract day; hoping you might enjoy an abstract photo.

The Corruption of Beauty

“The first sign of corruption in a society that is still alive is that the end justifies the means.”
— Georges Bernanos

Seeing that my Gun Control? post went over like a fart in church, today’s photo is an attempt at some abstract redemption. This is one of those rare photos where a title and complete concept for how I would process it came together instantly and spontaneously on first view of the RAW image file. I love that.

James bought this orchid last summer when the cancer was briefly in remission. As it is now in bloom for the first time since its purchase, I thought it was a good subject for a Valentine’s Day photo. I wish he could have seen it bloom.

Uncapped in Red Square

“I was born and I live in a small village, where the centre of life is the square, and the small bar/cafe.”
— Diego Della Valle

Today’s photo is a bit of a diversion for me, being a heavy application of textures and filters during processing in an attempt to create an abstract piece that’s a bit more “artsy”. What do you think?

Eggsistential

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
Four-score Men and Four-score more,
Could not make Humpty Dumpty what he was before.
      — Samuel Arnold, Juvenile Amusements, 1797

I am a few days early for a new year’s eve message, but today’s photo prompts me to get on with it. As I was walking along a sidewalk downtown, I came upon an egg that had fallen out of a nest built on a street light above. The sun had dried out the splattered yolk and a few ants scurried about the broken shell, feasting on misfortune. It struck me as a fitting reflection and symbol of the year that now comes to a close.

Despite the many advances in GLBT rights, I will forever equate 2013 to loss, destruction, pain and death. It is the year that shattered my life of happiness with James, watching him so cruelly and horrifyingly being eaten alive by cancer. Like a new and long-hoped-for egg, we embarked on the adventure of marriage on July 29 – after 21 years together – only to have that monumental accomplishment tossed out and splattered across the sidewalk a month-and-a-half later. Now, I sit alone in a nest that echoes with emptiness while hell taunts me with thoughts of what was and what never will be.

Goodbye, 2013 – and good riddance! I pray that 2014 will be a year that holds some hope of starting to heal from the experience this egg and I have shared. Perhaps my hopes are tainted by knowing all-too-well how Humpty Dumpty turned out.

Abstract Nature: Moss, Cypress and Sky

“It is another nature which speaks to the camera rather than to the eye.”
    — Walter Benjamin, Little History of Photography (1929)

Having a bit of fun going overboard with the various editing tools in OnOne Software’s new Perfect Photo Suite 8, again… Usually after a few days, I’ll get this sort of thing out of my system.
