Loose Ends

Unnamed Two, 2017 — Side Slide :: (click to see more)

Years ago my friend Paedric called me builder will and the older I get the more I realize how accurate that is. If I can’t be building something, I’m at loose ends. Today I’m feeling calm again – I’ve got my next project under way. Don’t know what to call it yet – working title Side Slip – but for now I’m confident this is what I’ve been searching for – it’s a good beginning at least.

I’ve been thinking about a mix of motion blurred foreground and still background through distance in this body of images. This is turning out to be difficult to achieve riding down the street on my bike. There isn’t quite enough distance between me and the stationary objects on the other side of the road. But I think I’ve got it worked out well enough to get decent results.
