It is more than two years since I contributed to our project. So much has changed since then. Certainly my response to Ferg’s image would be different today, both in my image and my narrative. However, I have included my original image (of course) and narrative…
My comments on Ferg’s image:
It’s just dawned on me how much I’ve been influenced by what I’ve been seeing lately (in Cornwall, England). When I first looked at Ferg’s image, “Flow”, just a couple of hours ago, the background appeared to me as a stormy or wizardly sky (a Harry Potter movie comes to mind!), with the textured timber as the subject. I saw lichen and moss covered rocks standing strongly, shoulder to shoulder, against that scary sky. So, while I can see the timber is probably a jetty with water flowing below, that was not my first impression.
Comments on my own image:
Ferg’s image immediately brought to mind the standing stones and castles I’ve seen in Cornwall recently. Roche Rock is a special one of these, where a building of stone has been built atop a large rock. The origins of the building are not known, and while not intact, it has withstood centuries of storms, no doubt of the human and natural kind.
