And, dig this: I’m in the process of cleaning up my Capture One catalog and came upon this image I don’t remember shooting a little over 15 years ago:
Here are some of the images from my final submission on the Pound haiku. These are the ones where I tried to illustrate the poem fairly literally:
- The first one has 2 pictures that have a ratio of 12: 5 in width (like the 12 and 5 syllables in the 2 lines of the haiku.
- The next 2 images go for a more classical 5, 7, 5 syllabic layout of images of the faces in the crowd and the petals on a wet black bough.
- And the final image superimposes the apparition of the faces in the crowd over the petals on a wet black bough.
Click any image to see them all enlarged on the screen. I also submitted a bunch of other images that have already been shown here.
I continue to be struck by the long shadow this little, dying plant casts from the windowsill
