Monochrome self portrait with white light bars across my face

Searching, it’s a common theme here on this blog … searching for that indescribable piece that falls into place the moment we find it. The thing you don’t know what you’re looking for until you’ve found it. That thing.

I’ve been looking for pictures to post … this is Pictures with Words after all … but I’ve come to realise over the course of this search that I’m grown dissatisfied with my body of work. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike them, they remain good photographs but they don’t represent where I am now. What to do about that? Well take some more obviously! Like this one taken this afternoon as the sun was beginning to set out the window of the flat. Those beams of incandescence, hot and bright. I felt them as I closed my eyes and breathed.

The wind in my heart

The wind in my heart

The dust in my head

The dust in my head

The wind in my heart

The wind in my heart

(come to) drive them away

Drive them away.


Listening Wind, Talking Heads, Remain In Light
