I am starting an experiment of sorts, one that relates to the things I love, but can be used for anything. I am going to begin looking at things differently, any way I can. The first method I am using is photography; I am going to play with an awesome feature that most cameras have in their options, where you can take photos in the negative. This is a lot of fun and can give some amazing results very easily. For me, I am using it as a device to inspire some creativity. I feel like there’s some hidden opportunity just waiting to give me an amazing story just from some simple images. Honestly I don’t know where it will go and that’s the fun of it. If I know where it would go there would be no point in it. I hope it takes me down a road I have never been down before. Anyone can do this and apply it to whatever they want, to achieve some result that may be different than expected. Play the devil’s advocate and see if your perception is realigned in some awesome way. An amazing world might open up; a new vision to fill a void that you may not have known was there. I like to think of them as Einstein’s thought experiments, a type of mind wandering, lacking direction, but in the course of things they may yield some interesting results if I just let it happen.
Ah, let the crazy images commence and may my family, friends, and fans bear with me. I expect to have, from time to time, some interesting photos that I’ll like to stare at, and maybe you will enjoy as well. May they bear fruit inspiration wise, or add some interesting illusions, while keeping the delusions to a minimum. So I ask…Where do you keep your negative side? What about it is negative? Is it a bad thing or is it just something different, there to support you in a way not understood? I instantly think of a scene from another great movie, The Dead Poets Society, where all of the students are standing on their desks; entering a new world, with eyes open. There is a desire to be comfortable with what we know; acceptance, I do not accept, not yet. I will challenge what is presented. I will question the positive. I will find what my life in the negative holds, and there I may find something more.
