Empty

Empty but not empty. Full of bits and molecules. The air is heavy with it. Takes your breath away. And the sheer volume of the structure….hanging there. Still, but always moving. Until that one moment, when it will come rushing down. There will be no stopping it. It will make an impression. Indentation. Convex, concave of eons of time in one fail swoop. I will be glad I am not there. I will be glad for it’s rest. It’s finish. It’s resolution at last.

Gary

Kevin and I had the opportunity to go with Rad Drew and Sally Meyer Wolf on one of their workshops to Gary and shoot abandon buildings. It was pretty interesting. The sheer size of the structures in their dilapidated state was very unsettling. There was a lot of beauty and geometry in the decay. There was history. Many stories. Both long ago and recent. Violence. Violent decay. Huge pieces of man made pulled back to nature. Beneath your feet. Above your head and all around. Transitory. No permanence. Makes you question all kind of things. Leaving behind. Moving forward. Priority. Evolution. Resolution. It was overwhelming yet addicting.

Into The Deep

Finally getting to some Iceberg pictures. Really, it was kind of like being in outer space. On the moon. Or mars. Such elegance. Beauty. Wildness. This place is nobody’s own. You are a guest. I would stay there on and on. Small things become unimportant and a whole new world comes into view. Being, and being with others that share that appreciation was phenomenal. The opportunity to capture it and share it is such an honor. Fills one with grace. I’ve started a gallery on my website. Much more to come. http://www.debrafadelyphotography.com/
