I like the landscape feel here…I think I will not have time for any call and response until June, but this will definitely be under consideration…(K)
taking it in, seems to me like humans had moved in, began tearing up the terrain, leaving their marks, but then vanished, not completing the job.
I love this description. It is perfect. I felt something of the same when I pulled out the phrase and matched it with the picture. The scene seemed deserted to me rather than pleasingly quite and empty, and the words surprised me in how well they fit – something I find pretty much every time I do these little ATC’s with phrases – the serendipity of the matches between picture and words is amazing to me.
serendipity is a power not often appreciated.
I’ve come to think it is one of the forces of the universe. Purposeful but diffuse in its effects. You have to be looking.
Have to go to Herbert Blau for one of my favorite quotes by him: “One has to prepare the looking, the right climate of mind around the eye.” Looking as a result of discipline and attitude.
And I would add in, curiosity, to think about what you see!
