Time does not flow, as space does not flow.

We move through time and space as a single unit. We interact within the moment and with the objects occupying the space around us.

Images seem to be frozen in time and existing within a predetermined space. We end up capturing illusions of our own perceptions. Our memories can be distorted, lost or forgotten. We can shuffle them like the cards in a deck, and no one is the wiser. Everything has happened and everything is happening. There isn't a now, just as there isn't a here. Since we are moving, here is there and now is then.

Light, space, and time are the fundamentals of our reality. Without one, the others could not exist. They are equal and one in the same. Like a trinity existing independently and as a whole, simultaneously.

If we can look beyond our visual experiences and see a greater picture that stretches further than our perceptions, we could imagine the reality that is in front of us.

We move through time and space. They are static. We are objects just as the subjects in the viewfinder. Some objects move faster than others. Some seem to not move at all. All things moving on their own path through time and space.

Time does not flow, as space does not flow.


About the Author

I have been carrying a camera with me for 25 years. I shoot the things in life, were I am. The subjects are usually not beautiful on their own, but somehow strike me by the beauty found in their commonality. Not the extraordinary, but the ordinary. Simple, usually quiet subjects that may go unnoticed. Black and white because, I guess that is the way I see. To me, my images feel a bit sad, a bit strange, a bit interesting, and the subjects, somehow unique. I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting.
