Road Stories 2 ~ the edges of

A-Sweep-of-Light

DuskBridge

Left-Behind-_-Light-TrailsThe edges of the city in that in-between light at the edge of the day. It seems too we are in the fray of both winter and spring. But were making progress. It’s okay that it’s not moving along too quickly; I am trying to savour the slow release of the earth and the lethargic inching up of the thermometre.

Transitions can happen so quickly that there are times you can’t get to them. Can’t be in them. They are gone before you arrive. But the edges, they are full of possibilities too.

  1. This is a great series, Karen. Some abstract and some not quite so. The truck image has all the impact that one would wish for .

  2. You said: Transitions can happen so quickly that there are times you can’t get to them. Can’t be in them. They are gone before you arrive. But the edges, they are full of possibilities too.

    Perfectly put…!

  3. wow – i just had the above quotation copied and ready to paste as well (so I will!): “Transitions can happen so quickly that there are times you can’t get to them. Can’t be in them. They are gone before you arrive. But the edges, they are full of possibilities too.” Agreed – so aptly stated. That last photo particularly affected me as well. Thank you for your wisdom and work.

  4. It does all happen at the edge – I remember learning that about plant and animal communities decades ago; the idea resonated and fascinated me. These are just beautiful, Karen, full of the constant motion of being on the road but imbued with a sense of stillness, too.

  5. Wonderful images, Karen! My favourite is the top one – being at the top maybe its your favourite too??? I really love the massive, looming presence of the truck, and also that car up ahead – and these two components are of course sent flying rocket-high by the absolutely beautiful colour of the light. The strong, dark, horizontal bar of that bridge also aids the composition considerably – it fills the upper left corner admirably.

    And another reason why this image gets to me is that it is just the sort of image that I would like to create, that I have wanted to create for sometime – but I lack a driver who can keep us safe while I’m attending to the photography! Adrian
