In-betweens // Part one


There's a big wind coming on that pushes the water toward the shore in mammoth currents.
A steady bluish, blushing ripple where water and atmosphere commingle.

I have a preoccupation with the in-betweens of things.

That elusive space between the sea and the air and the sea and the shore and the sea and the ocean floor, tectonic and atmospheric business.

I am, for instance, obsessed with the fleshy gap between my thumb and pointer finger, where there is a tiny mole which as a child I tried and tried to scratch away. I am interested in dusk, and autumn, in transience, in the thrill of things ill-defined. I like intermissions at the theatre.

This is one of the vast variety of things -- of which I am reminded, when sitting by the sea.

  4. Precisely my thoughts. Most specifically about the "fleshy gap", I often find myself staring at it too. Mhhm.

    Your photos are enchanting, can I ask what type of lens you use?

    1. Thank you!

      I use my 50 mm 1.4 quite often for blog photos -- but this one was actually just taken with my iPhone! : )
