Playing with layers of depth, density and texture, my thoughts keep returning to the Mariana Trench, that rift in the seabed – 10,996 meters down. It lies in the Western Pacific, east of the Philippines. This abstract image reminds me of a time at sea when sailing across the vast Pacific where distances to horizons stretch over vast plains of indigo blue. The inky depths had an allure like no other, and the waves broke ice-white in pristine opalescence. Oh! Sometimes I yearn to be on that ocean in it’s sea-blue colours, feeling it’s textures and windsong moods.
Ben’s challenge this week ….. “share with us a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture (or just choose one of these elements if you’d like). Strata of clouds, a shirt collar peeking through a sweater, a cross-section of an onion: you can keep your interpretation as literal or as figurative as you wish.”
