Planned Chaos

One thing I read and hear a lot about is the idea of ‘giving into the process.’

While I’m not wholly ready for this I do see an opportunity today with the bright sky and changing winds to try a simple idea: to photograph a sheet of fabric tied to some string and let the wind do the work. So I enjoyed the warmth and sun while I sat and watched the fabric dance this way and that in the wind. Just watching.

Observing.

After about 30 minutes I managed a few frames of mild interest, this is one of those photographs. I’m sure with a little more time and creative exploration this basic process could yield some lovely images. In this case it certainy is elevated to art photography but it certainly starts me down that path.
