Sometimes when you're not looking, the coolest stuff shows up.
Understanding full well that what I find interesting may not be the icing on everybody's cake.
I have always been most comfortable with discovery. Maybe that's why the cameras go with me as I meander around the region with other things to do. You never know when something might pop up. Thank goodness. As an old friend and fanastic MAGNUM photographer, Erich Hartmann, once said to me, “F5.6 and be there.” Have a camera with you when it happens.
Another famous person, perhaps William Shakespeare, said, “The eyes are the windows to the soul.” Also, not a bad suggestion for the photographically inclined. Eyes reveal a lot, and as one who has studied the paintings and photography of many over the years, the eyes get it!
Which brings me to today's photo offering. In my world of photography, windows are eyes in many ways, allowing us to see out and for others to see in. Bringing light and nature and vista. I am especially smitten with the old glass often found in buildings that are getting a bit long in the tooth.
As you can tell by the weathered wood, this is not a new building, but rather a place that has seen much and far over many years.
This subject did not reveal itself to me for looking. I was elsewhere bound as the sun was going down. At Hendricks Head beach, in fact, a favorite haunt. The low tide was quite extreme, and, fascinated as I am with low tide, I waded in. Well beyond the beach's edge.
The eyes of this building have watched many suns go down. The old glass does wonderful things, abstracting the light, creating new forms that become almost kaleidoscopic. I hope there is more to be seen.
