Piercing Rays/Fractured Light

Working towards master status requires a lot of hard work.  Seeing as how I got into the game late, there should be a greater urgency to my pace; however, melancholy can make getting down to business difficult especially when too invested in the downward spiral of humanity.  George Carlin had to remind me to just be a spectator, to laugh at the hypocrisy and stupidity, and to, ultimately, detach myself from the outcome.  After all, life is just one big play.  Though I’m not suggesting life is meaningless.  Play is a serious thing.  Little kids are a good reminder of that fact.  Learning is hard, if not impossible, if you never play.

However, you don’t have to play by the rules of the elites’ ruling institutions.  They bend and break the rules whenever they feel like it.  There are laws greater than their creations.  They aren’t the ultimate controllers of the game.  We came from outer space and to outer space we will once again return, just as our physical forms come from mother earth and return back to her when exhausted.  All the little cycles are parts of the larger cosmic cycle.  From ashes to ashes, to (star)dust to (star)dust, we’re all just actors, but it’s still good to give a fuck.  Even if you don’t really feel like helping humanity out through community involvement, at least practice the Hippocratic concept of “do no harm.”

It is time for me to step my game up.  Mastering the art of HDR will be a big part of my maturation.  HDR, or High Dynamic Range Imaging, creates magical photos.  By utilizing three different exposures of the same picture, achieving much richer lighting is possible.  My first example is fairly crude, especially compared to the incredible work already out there, but HDR is the future of photography and I have no choice but to master it.  Plus, eye popping visual pieces are always pleasing to create and look at.

Rebuilt after a beer truck barreled through the original park, Lynn Street Park is small, but colorful.
