Just another random laneway…
This photo has been deleted and restored many times… it’s an accidental shot, as I was removing an ND filter from the front of my lens. I dismissed it quickly, but there’s something about it that keeps drawing me back – such a small slice of Melbourne, and so easily identifiable. In the end, I have concluded that maybe my camera knows more than I do about what’s worth sharing, so I have honoured its decision…
A life is a thing of many splinters
sometimes they fit together and we see a bigger picture, jagged lines and chaotic textures aligning to create a whole.
Other times the pieces won’t fit, and all we see are the spaces between the parts that we hold.
Always though, no matter how complete the picture,
we live it together –
with people we love, people we meet, people we brush past in the street or glimpse as we ride into the belly of the city.
We are all part of the jagged, clumsy, patched-up thing, finding and losing pieces of ourselves and then finding them all over again.
Feels even more like summer today – it’s no longer sneaking up, so much as it is shoutly loudly about its impending arrival…
Watching the sun and the city, the gap narrowing, feeling like summer as the evening stretches and uncurls itself, revealing light, laughter, coming home.
