Abstraction - Post-Narrative Reflections

Being as self-aware as I am, it continues to amaze me the emotional and psychic release afforded by my iPhone reflections.  The angst of my past lives and their creative utterances no longer seem of such great import.  Perhaps they are gathering momentum for a new, more demanding claim on my eye and soul.  For now, I feel quite liberated to be mobile with my muse and not so deeply personal in my output.  The narrative of life, refined by time's passage, has become the post-narrative abstract counter-point. And image capture, the apprehended moment, is the vehicle. You may or may not have an idea of a story being told by each (or all) of these images but I don't think this will prevent your enjoyment of all (or some) and for me, that is the beauty of abstraction, even if it is a loose abstraction.

Recent Landscapes - St.Joseph, Barbados

Actually these are recent as in today!  Took in a tour of the countryside today with a friend whose agenda was to take some video of the landscape.  Along with her cousin, we covered a good set of ground and I reconnected a bit with the land that has been the testing ground for my photography since 2007.  Applying new confidence and a bit of photographic "rain making" - willing the light, if you will (no pun) - I found so much to see that I had not seen before for as many times as I have traveled these old country roads.  For those who have never visited Barbados, this will all seem a bit like non-paradise (where are the beaches?) but I am determined that viewers of this blog, both those who have enjoyed this island  and those only seeing it through pictures, will come to understand the deep beauty and psychic depth of the land, especially inland areas, where so much history is determined to remain witness to the always-accelerating press of modernity.

The Healing Image

For reasons best left untold, this post is being re-uploaded  - less the little e-pistle I wrote with it. Without the text, which is usually typed straight into the blog and is thus not saved anywhere else, I have merely attempted to title the images but I won't bother to explain why this time...
