Playing with the Landscape at Schoepfle Garden


June 9, 2019

It’s happened again: the feeling that I’ve gone stale, taken my life’s quota of decent photographs, and all that’s left is to repeat myself. It doesn’t help that we’ve had so much rain that I can’t even get close to the river, let alone walk across it to the other side, where all the good photographs are. (You may recall the fence on the other side of which the grass is always greener.) I was in Schoepfle Garden yesterday hoping to discover something. I was prepared to try intentional camera movement if nothing came along. And it didn’t. ICM is always a crapshoot (think of the ways you can read that word). So when I downloaded, I didn’t expect to find a lot of treasures. But I did think I’d find a few. What I found was very few—so I tried going black and white with the best ones. The B&Ws may be my favorites. I wonder what you think. I also wonder if it will ever stop raining long enough for me to get next to the river. I need to get out of this slump . . . maybe a completely new location . . . or is that the fence with the greener grass on the other side, too . . .

The series of photographs that ended yesterday with The Blind 11 began—as do so many things—serendipitously.  I was looking on my computer for older photos that I’d taken with Intentional Camera Movement, ones I had passed up in their day. I’d had so much fun a few weeks earlier, playing with the Pennsylvania landscape, that I wanted more of it. In searching for the older ICM photos I bumped into the first two photographs of the designs that blinds make on walls and ceilings. Then I remembered other photographs I’d taken of blinds designs and kept going. Meanwhile I also played with the old ICM photos. Here’s the first of the new batch. All were taken in Gulf Coast Florida.
