Palm Lane is another image that is being considered for my series Transitional Seam. And I find myself reconsidering what my intent is for this project as I keep proceeding. I had expected to create an equal amount of images of the new homes and businesses in this area. But lately it seems like I have become more of a preservationist of capturing (documenting? No I don’t think so) what is here now. But that is not my intent, rather I find my self extremely interested in the ‘western’ country look, the architecture, the context of the homes with the land and the feel for this area.
I also like the individuality of these homes and neighborhoods and lately the early morning and late afternoon light and the resulting forms and shapes that are created. Well, I am not going to re-write or edit my artist statement for this series just yet, but I am going to start penciling some more thoughts as I have here. Yeah, I do use a pencil, becasue I like the feel of it as I make a mark on paper. And yes, I did a lot of drawing before photography and that was what I did a lot of when I was very frustrated with photographic papers in the mid-1980’s. But I degress.
So I will take more photographs and do some more thinking about why I take the roads that I do and make the photographs I do. Anybody know a good shrink??
Best regards, Doug
