Constantly in Motion

Art photography by Lucas James; Mara in Mylar.

There is a certain irony in trying to photography cherry blossoms.  Why try to preserve what is only beautiful because it is impermanent?

We are constantly in motion.  Moving, growing, consuming, producing.  A photograph- any photograph- is only a memento of what was. We are multifaceted beings.  To you, I am an artist, blogging about the metaphysical and how it relates to my creation of art photographs.  To my coworkers I am a scientist analyzing data, forming hypotheses and ultimately trying to get drugs to patients.  To my family, I am someone only seen to them.  We are complex, multifaceted beings.  A photograph is only a faint impression of a portion of one of those facets.  A photograph is “what was” the moment the shutter clicks- not only is it a thin shadow of a person, it is a thin shadow of who they were.  And it can never be any more.
