Hotel Room Windows


 

My unexpected two month break, AKA life of leisure, is over and I'm back to a travel schedule that I'd rather not have.  Still, I'm grateful for the position I have so I'll do no complaining.

The travel of late has been domestic and international.  As I see something that interests me, as I have done for years, I make an image.  They are usually crap, and it's completely possible that two included images are in that same category.  But I happen to like these two images even though they don't really fit anywhere else.  

Several years ago, I wanted to show my family what travel was to me.  I did a series called "Absence" that was an indication of what travel looked like.  I'm not sure they got it, but the series had some interest from a few people, and I do know that at least a few people got it and enjoyed the images. 

I have a few window images that are starting to coalesce and might actually make a series.  I'm starting to think in much shorter series.  Long narrative stories are not my forte and the ideas behind them seem to never quite come together for me. But short stories I can work with.  It might take words blended with the images but I think I'm OK with that.  Working out how to make them compelling, well, that's another matter altogether.
