Two Photographs; not more than 20 feet and 30 seconds apart
Today is a special day for Maggie Barrett. The novel Maggie was writing during the time I made all these ‘Every day in the year’ photographs, was published just today, and I want to celebrate this with all of you, if I may. Not only have I lived through the journey of watching a novel be published, but I played a small part in its publishing in that Maggie chose one of my Elements photographs for the book jacket, and, with great pleasure, I made the Author’s photograph. And you have seen many Maggies during this year.
For those of you who may have followed Maggie’s Blog, http://www.feelingourwayaround.com you know how interesting a writer she is. But if you have not, then you may be curious to see for yourself what a provocative and witty writer she is. The book; “From Dusk to Dawn” by Maggie Barrett, is now available online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble. Enjoy the trip.
I always love these places; overwhelmed as they are by density and detail, which have little to offer in terms of familiar beauty since their form is chaotic and, well, indeterminate. Yet it is in the wonder of the detail, and abundance, and light, and all that bristling energy, that I sometimes am convinced that Beauty is this deeply seated in our consciousness!
