DAILY FLICKR PICKR DAY 540

Every day we share a single photo from our Flickr Pool shot by one of our faithful and talented readers (that’s you!)

While I have never set out with the goal of deliberately tying consecutive Daily Flickr Pickr posts together through visual segues, I do find a harmony and/or progression between Jan Gates’ photo from Saturday’s post and today’s photo from Andriy. While both images feature some vegetation and a degree of abstraction, Jan’s possesses a cold, foreboding feeling and yet Andriy’s appears warmer and is not at all sinister. It’s almost as if both images could inhabit the same strange world, but whereas one is fairly bleak in appearance, the other at least promises some hope and optimism for the future

Whoa – I didn’t mean to get so deep and stuff back there – I apologize for that. Andriy’s caption mentions that this small scene caught his attention during a break from scanning film while in out-and-about in Richmond. And as anyone out there who shoots film will tell you, scanning film is easily the least exciting part of photography. Okay, maybe it’s tied for least exciting with reading rejection letters for grants and exhibitions, but you get the idea. Here is the literarily-titled catcher in the rye.

But as I experienced myself this weekend, spending a Saturday night in Duncan BC waiting outside a mini storage facility for automatic lighting to turn on kind of makes scanning film seem a little more exciting…
