Welcome to my brain.
To me life is this gestalt of circumstances that make up the whole. I can't turn this or that off. I just say---yes, I can do that or - maybe that can wait.
Today I found myself in my car during some heavy rain.
Instead of wishing it was sunny I made this simple picture in my windshield.
I found it poetitic, I found it philisophical. I found it worth taking note of.
I think we forget about those moments too often. Things we should take note of.
Years ago, my friend and mentor Rico pinardi challenged us to take note of our surroundings in an assignment he called "The Acre,"
That assignment we were to take an area and explore the possibilities of what we could discover there and make work.
Most of the students didn't really get what he was selling.... but it was everything to me. That assignment has influenced everything I have become as a documentary photographer and artist,
There is no such thing in this life as a place not worth exploring. If nothing else we have our mind. Our mind can create or discover infinite possibilities.
We are luckt to be alive and have this ability to witness truly remarkable life in the complexities of society or the simplicity of raindrops on our window.
Life is truly a gift.
