Up through
The canyon

Quote From The Four Winds   Leave a comment

“As we know, there are lessons to be learned from history.
Hope to be derived from hardships faced before.
We’ve gone through bad times before and survived, even thrived.
History has shown us the strength and durability of the human spirit,
In the end, it is our idealism and our courage, and our commitment to one another
–what we have in common–that will save us.”

— from “The Four Winds” by Kristin Hannah

Houston Blues (The Rhythem Room, 2005) — B&W Collage by kenne

“Working in black and white makes me feel like a painter, not a photographer.
Shooting this way allows me to focus my attention on the light and shade, textures, shapes and expressions.
It’s really a matter of personal choice, but in my opinion black and white can lead to a more abstract reading of reality,
which is arguably more demanding and more challenging to produce. Here photographers cannot use flattering
colours or coloured light to distract the eye. You cannot cheat in black and white.”

Doubtful Canyon, 360   Leave a comment

Doubtful Canyon, 360 (12-08-12) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Standing In The Eye

Look around
what do you see?

A bright sun
in a blue sky

above a desert
of rocks and sand

surrounded by
mountain ranges —

look again and
you will see life

you can only see
standing in the eye.

Climate Change — Abstract Art by kenne

black and gray
drowns
out the blue
oceans
full of plastic
poison
in our water
virus
in the air
deserts
are dryer
water
in the streets
glasers
are melting
forests
are burning
times
are changing

My soul’s shadow
raps around the moon.

My heart is resting
in a bed of dreams.

My eyes open wide
just before dawn.

Creosote Seed Pod — Image by kenne

If the blue sky is a fantasy,
what will become of innocence?
What will become of the heart
if Love has no arrows?

And if death is death,
what will become of poets?
and things in a cocoon
which no one remembers?
Oh sun of hopes!
Clear water! New moon!
Dull souls of stones!
Today I sense in my heart
a vague tremor of stars
and all roses are
as white as my sorrow.

— from Autumn Song by Federico García Lorca

Under androgynous sky
Sun or moon
Father or mother

The camera never lies
But the photographer
Knows how to fib
