There are times when I feel I have lost my vision.
I still have a functional vision, thank heavens, but I am missing the underlying patterns. I went into the city yesterday and it was a barren journey. The Zephyrometer is one of the kinetic wind sculptures on Lyall Bay and it was beating around in the blustery wind. A slow exposure caught some of that, and some of the grey sky above that represented my mood so well. I have said before that I think they reduced the counter-weight after the lightning strike so that it now waves about more freely and in much lighter winds, It was certainly busy yesterday.
And then it was the end of the day. I have an App on my iPad that allows it to display specific colours or light at specific colour temperatures, so I dialled up some colour and put a few of my rarely used Faber Castell hard chalk pastel sticks on it.
I should mention that I was using my macro lens which is a delight. If the time is taken to set it up well, it produces “pin-sharp” images, and that thought provided the idea for the next iPad-based image.
That’s all, and I hope for better vision today.
