This image is an abstraction of a photo taken by a fellow blogger. The original photo was part of a post that featured the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast of the US. I’m so grateful to Patti Kuche for her permission to use her image for my own creation. I pretty much “stormed over” the image because it just felt like the Hurricane was still going on. And in some ways it is still going on as there are still people struggling to put their lives together after that storm and many of them have now had to deal with the onslaught of winter storms. It reels the mind to think what that must be like. Her blog is titled NYLON DAZE. She describes her blog as “From London to New York, living in an expat daze”. She is an amazing documentary photographer who has a way of placing the viewer in the middle-of-it-all while maintaining an artful vision. The photo that captured my imagination was titled “COLLAPSE” and was featured in the post titled “ON THE BEACH” from 17 Dec. 2012. Here is the link to the photo she so graciously gave me permission to use
. Be sure to check out her blog.
Thank you Patti for your ongoing inspiration.
