I should never embark on anything in my current mood. It’s too easy for an idea to become an obsession. That’s what’s happened with RegularRandom, the challenge on DesleyJane’s blog to spend five minutes photographing an object. For my second attempt, a sand bank chose me.
Here, I’m not really experimenting with light, because outside the light is what it is, and mostly doesn’t change much in five minutes. I certainly can’t manipulate the sun. What I’ve done is photograph what I see, with one foot staying in the same position in front of a sand bank crisscrossed by roots and vines as I look up, down, out and straight ahead. The other foot I permit to lunge at full reach. It is mainly an exercise in examining a site in close up.
