Unevolving

“The future is uncertain but the end is always near.”
― Jim Morrison

I have previously shared my observation that Time’s method of “healing all wounds” is most often through the obliteration of the wounded. Photographs are frequently intentional or unintentional markers and milestones of the obliteration of the wounds of the past. Nothing like Time can so effectively and completely take something that once had value and deep significance — like a home whose walls contained laughter and tears, birth and death, good times and bad, a family — and transform it into a nuisance, an eyesore, and a hindrance to progress. And what is progress but the infliction of new wounds and the ongoing assurance of job security for Time?

I hope you’ll dance.

Lines and Cow

Drive just a few miles outside of Kissimmee and the sea of hotels, gift shops, questionable restaurants and theme park-related tourist traps disappear. These obstructions give way to Central Florida’s natural beauty, cypress swamps and pastures. This is by far the Florida I prefer. It is the Florida that surrounded me growing up, before “Disneyfication” completely turned the place upside down. In childhood, I often walked through the pastures and cypress swamps near our home with my friends. Those adventures revealed so many little marvels of nature; marvels that seemed to me then and still do now to be revelations of Divine planning and intent. It saddens me that my favorite childhood swamp is now a parking lot and apartment building. I suppose they live on, in a sense, having given life to the fascination I have today with observing and photographing the order from which our chaos is derived.

From a technical standpoint, today’s photo is about composition and using lines to draw and direct the viewer’s eye. I hope you like it.
