"While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see." - Dorothea Lange

Cables & Wires ~ 12/2/10

I can't decide which one of these I like better.
So, you get to see them both.
With or Without Pole?

I think I prefer the cropped one because it's simpler and a little more striking in that sense but then the one with the pole in it has more of the clouds which add a cool kind of counterpoint to all the angularity below it that you don't get in the cropped version. Either way I really like how the colors jive- it feels kind of lonely to me but not sad. I have a feeling about what kind of day it is in the photo but wouldn't it be neat to be able to read the clouds and know whether it was colder or windier that day?
The emotions of the sky made visible in a kind of ordered chaos behind the rigidly ordered concrete made chaotic with bolts and wires. It reminds me of my inner and outer life in ways :). It's interesting to me where abstract images can serve as kind of mutable symbols-- like finding shapes and patterns in shifting clouds. Ideally I could write something with that quality, that you could "stare" at and it would change for you just as you contemplated what it meant to you-- the difference between having a meaning and simply "meaning" with kind of an evolutionary connotation.
Sorry if I'm getting weird :)
