Title: Circle of Dust

About the Photo:

Eventually each one of us will dissolve into the skyline

Regardless of how monumental we become

We will spill back into the sea of dust

You and I will be equal

We will be emptied

We will be full

I loved how the clouds in this looked like they were dissolving back into the skyline. This was taken during a snowy sandstorm. Weird right? The main big cloud represents the “famous” or “monumental” person, whereas the lesser clouds are beneath, and not as “mighty” seeming.

It really doesn’t matter who you are. You’re going to die like the rest of us. Each and everyone of us will return to the sea of dust. This is a commonality we all share as humans. In the end it doesn’t matter how monumental you were in life.

Does it?

Chromesthesia colors inspired by Fleetwood Mac, ”Seven Wonders”.

Synesthesia is a neurological condition, where you experience one of your senses through another. For me when I listen to music I see color, and shape. I photograph while listening to music to find shapes, and to see what colors might look best in the landscape I’m looking at. I then add the colors back in post processing of the photograph.
