Plain Sight

Serenity after chaos can make itself felt in various ways. And it is needed to rebalance ones state of mind. I found myself drawn to this humble photograph because of the expansive and yet ordinary characteristics it uses to hold me for a moment, not let me move on, and then to draw me in, to transform my resistance into a small smile of wonder at the recognition, once again, that the most we can do is to work with what we have at any given moment.

This is where I am. This is what I see. This is what the world looks like.

A kind of honest appreciation of the fact that the sublime is often hidden in plain sight.

    Hi Joel

    Really pleasing to hear you’re finding some peace after the dramatic events of the last few days. I love how this image captures that moment in time, one so counterpoint to the last through days and, through the photograph, allows us to understand where you are, in both senses of the term.

    With best wishes
