Bridging the Gap (Memphis, TN)

These days, it’s hard for me to consider a photo shoot complete without indulging my lines, light, and shadow obsession. Sometimes that requires an impractical amount of intentional wandering, at just the right time of day to try to catch the sun falling in just the right direction behind bizarre ordinary objects (benches are my friends). Other times you’re just strolling through random streets, engaged in a compelling conversation, and this happens.

      1. As an uber-fan of self-awareness (and your blog), I am impressed by your knowledge that you don’t need to produce art to love it. I’ll probably never be a graphic novelist, as much as my desperate heart wishes I could be, but Sandman knocks my socks off. And so on.

      2. Thank you so very much for the kudos. I enjoy your posts as well — I’ve been to some of the cities you’ve mentioned in your posts, although it was so long ago that I don’t want to admit just how long ago it was. And anything culturally Japanese… well, that fits into my love of that culture as a student of zen.

        I’m afraid I am worse at being a graphic artist as I am at being a photographer. The kids make up for my lack of talent and I live vicariously through them. I’ll stick to murdering words and pretending like I was some musical genius that I never was.

        One lie is enough, don’t you think? 😉

  1. I absolutely adore this photo. It’s another one of your very best shots. I would love to frame it, and hang it on a wall. It has all of your trademarks : The composition is exquisite. Phenomenal use of leading lines that pull you into the image. The use of the shadows, combined with the natural lines of the deck and railing is brilliant. The slight Dutch Angle. The extraordinary depth. The iconic visual element way off in the background, very nearly imperceptible. It’s genius. Well done.
