Veiled

Nude Photo Session, Bolton Hill, Baltimore, Maryland. VP6041 Verichrome Pan 120 mm 6x6 cm BW negative film.
Baltimore, Bolton Hill

The river is within us, the sea is all about us;
The sea is the land’s edge also, the granite
Into which it reaches, the beaches where it tosses
Its hints of earlier and other creation…

Lady, whose shrine stands on the promontory,
Pray for all those who are in ships, those
Whose business has to do with fish, and
Those concerned with every lawful traffic
And those who conduct them.

Repeat a prayer also on behalf of
Women who have seen their sons or husbands
Setting forth, and not returning;
Figlia del tuo figlio,
Queen of Heaven…
T.S. Eliot: Four Quartets

And elsewhere, I note the passing of Neil Armstrong and praise his photography.

  1. The concept here is interesting and would provide a class for art appreciation with long discussions, I’m sure. I like the gentle contrasts and the composition very much. Nice work, Michael.

  2. Fantastic image of complementary shapes and tones. I liked your take on my Mt St Helens shot, earth as living organism. Thanks for your thoughtful comments. I very much appreciate it!
