we have become so enthralled
self-absorbed in our own light
when we look up at the night sky
we cease to see the stars
from our own manufactured urban brightness
when all we do is watch
we’ve stopped looking
we are trapped by the light of our devices
and all that we see stops us from seeking
Stars have disappeared
City lights prevail at night
Leaves fall from the tree
A very cool video about one of my favorite painters by one of my favorite YouTube channels.
I’ve added a new page to this site called Abstract Photography. This photo is one of many featured on that page. You may click on “Abstract Photography” above or use this link https://onbeingbecoming.com/abstract-photographs/
Sometimes I like deliberately using the the wrong white balance setting for the color that it gives.
I’ve gone to one of my favorite haunts (an underground car park) All new images ,but one or two of them are re-shoots including this first one, in the series.
This series is inspired by the album OBLIVION HYMNS by the band Hammock. One image a day for each of the 10 original songs + 3 bonus images for the deluxe edition of the album. Total 13 images in 13 days (13 has always been a lucky number for me).
I love Hammock’s moody work and it has been a perfect soundtrack for my current state of mind. So here we go…..
FYI – for those who follow me, or maybe you’ve chanced upon my page, and you like my photo-based digital abstracts: I’ve now collected them on one gallery page titled abstract creations. So now you don’t have to scroll through all my posts to find them. If you click on ABSTRACT CREATIONS (shown under my blog header) then click on any one of the photos you can view it larger. You can also use this link.
For over 20 years I’ve had a shaved head and a mustache usually with a goatee tuft under my lower lip. But this year has been all about change. Change both wanted and unwanted. I decided changing my look was part of a change I wanted. So now my hair is shoulder length and I have a full beard. I’ve gotten in touch with my inner Walt Whitman (one of my favorite American Poets). I took this selfie with my iPhone and processed it in photoshop. Pleased enough with the outcome to use it as my new avatar profile image for my sites. Enjoy.
Restless dreams at night
Toss’d ’bout on flashes of light
Ships on stormy seas
A thunder not heard
The storm can’t hide its approach
Bright lightning flashes
The quiet of night
Static on the radio
The rain comes lightly
Across the night sky
A visual symphony
Heat lightning flashes
Disturbing the night
Punctuating the darkness
Heat lightning dances
Dark blanket of Night
Heavens dome with light flashes
White doves in dark skies
