The weather was wet, wet, wet earlier in the day, and then the sky cleared and the sun came out. I live near the Strait of Juan de Fuca across from the Olympic Peninsula and the sky can be quite dramatic over the water, with the mountains peeking through a veil of clouds. I followed along the coast, finally stopping at a lookout up above the Strait. Of the various images I had to choose from, I picked this image because I felt as if this cloud formation was a metaphor for past and future. I also like the historical reference to Stieglitz's "Equivalents".
Keeping in mind why I had selected this image, I've titled it:
"He felt as if his life was being redefined, the past separating from the future"
The title of this blog is taken from Alexander McCall Smith's 44 Scotland Street series of books. Bertie is a wee precocious boy who's not allowed to be a child. His mother has grand plans for him, and has organized "The Bertie Project" to educate him well beyond his years. This blog is meant to be my own personal "Bertie Project" - a way to lead a more enriched life.
