Gray day. The streak on horizon was the appeal. It was all there was. Shoot. Crap shoot, really. This was long before I was shooting RAW, so no direction home in editing. Gray on gray on gray. Blah. Nothing. Ain’t it hard when I discovered that it really wasn’t where it’s at…
It sat in archives for almost nine years.
One day I pulled it out, more as an exercise than anything else. How can I emphasize the streak? Well, I’d have to lose everything else. When you ain’t got nothin’, you go nothin’ to lose. You’re invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal…
How does it feel…?
It feels Cold. Stark. Dark.
But at the same time, Electric. Alive
