Marginal Space

On the margins; that's where I found this photo. It was off to the side, part of bigger photo I'd taken of something else. I cropped it severely, and this is what remained: only the margin, the unintentional capture. In the end, I like it far better this way. I like the lines (those formalistic as well as the literal power lines), not to mention the shadows, textures.

This is a photo that whispers to me of unknown stories, De Chirico mysteries, a little bit of mischief.

All of that was waiting in the margins.


  1. Yes, textures and shadows abound in this photo! Thank goodness for those who see what everyone else does not.
