Pastel Glissando, 2014 – Light Signatures :: (click to see more)

You know, I think I’m ready to get out and shoot some new material – finally.

Looking at the Light Signatures source material today, house keeping files stored in the wrong place and discovering missing material on my camera, I realized – yep, it’s time. Maybe even time to re-evaluate what the city means to me.

I was mulling that over on my ride home yesterday – trying to envision something, anything. But nothing yet. Although, I’m still enchanted with the idea of layering and juxtaposing elements somehow and encasing the whole menagerie in a block of resin like some prehistoric insect in amber. And catching sight today of an earlier experiment, stitching and blocking city images as an abstracting layer, I realized I still want to explore that too.

But neither of these thoughts are fully developed – no idea how I’m going to pull them off. It’s time to get back out and start looking with fresh eyes for new material that will fit so I can figure out how they’re going to look.

I guess that means I’m mostly done with Light Signatures. Hmmm. Sad in a way – but uplifting too. Exciting times – new ideas, new possibilities. We shall see where this goes.
