(all the while listening to Electric Ladyland. "still rainin, still dreamin!")


on plato's cave.

a question about the empirical.
when taking a photo, the best results always involve capturing elements in the landscape which are slippery, which focus on and celebrate the particular circumstances stumbled upon in place/in time. and by extension bending the shit out of presumed or received expectations so that those expectations are, well, no longer available.
at least that seems to be my aesthetic these days.

in short: persue unique moments that shatter preconceptions of any empirical solidity and which stand witness to themselves. alone.

eg. clouds rolling into abraham yesterday.

its in the gap between "expected," empirically static version of the mountain (which has never existed, after all) and the rogue, captured image that reveals true magic and wonder.

sometimes when you squint...
or, better,
"once in a while you get shown the light
in the strangest of places if you look at it right."

i'll never see abraham just like yesterday and neither will you.
groove on the flux!
