We all have speed bumps that crop up in our lives. It may be a death, an accident or loss of some other sort that causes us to slow down and even stop to reconsider our direction in life. This is a good thing. Life’s tragedies large and small can be a sort of amazing grace. And sometimes they can even make us better.
Wherefore I am well pleased in infirmities, in damages, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses — for Christ; for whenever I am infirm, then I am powerful.
~ 2 Corinthians 12:12 (YLT – Young’s Literal Translation)
More in the ongoing series of images of signs….. today a side-by-side view of the same image. Only one word is changed. You already know my fascination, interest, obsession with textual content in images and art.
Well since I’ve switched to B&W. This obsession has been renewed and re-imagined.
I’ve started one series called THE STORY OF OUR LIVES which is simply just photographs of signs with the idea that signs tell our life story.
What do signs mean? What do they tell us? How do they control us? etc.
I’ve since started a new series which is a spin-off of that. The new series is about re-texting our lives. In this new series I am actually re-wording the signs I photograph typically just one word. The previous 3 images I’ve posted are part of this series. How does one word change the meaning of a sign? What happens when we mis-read a sign (thinking it says one thing when it actually says another)? How much attention to we pay toward signs anyway? Are signs just the ignored art of our time?
