image of dark glossy water with bright yellowy-green lily-pads floating on the top. some of them are partially submerged and you can see their murky shapes and light in the dark ash color of the water.

No Path

The Sea Here, Teaching Me


|
far away shot of a city and freeway in twilight. everything in the image is bathed in a deep purple, violet twilight. on the freeway, the headlights of the car make little pinpricks of light. the sky hanging above the earth is dark purple nearest the ground and the trees, and then there is a burst of yellow and deep pink clouds under a pale sky the color of eggshells, just as a smooth, and dimming steadily.

Lord, Sky


|
upward shot of the top of a large cathedral with two towers flanking the center structure, both with a turret at the very top (a steeple). the image is overlaid with light leaks of purple and red, and while the cathedral is lit by the sun, the shadows are green. it looks like the film was ruined, overexposed, or opened up, so the image is saturated with watercolor-ish colors.

Some Saint

Walking to Emmaus


|
full frame black and white photo of an old forest. and a pathway or small clearing through the trees. the trees are sturdy and tall and stand in straight lines, the merest hints of branches only visible at the top of the frame. the entire image is diffused with light that weaves through the trees and settles on the land like perfume.

They Went On and On…
