The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Leya.
She says: “The future is the period of time that will come after the present, or the things that will happen then.” … “Show us what you will paint on Your canvas!”
Hmm. Those of us interested in science fiction, horology, or spacetime may look for a time warp, black hole, or alternate universe from which to take a picture.
Lapham’s Quarterly historical journal did an issue on The Future and its cousin Time, on which I’ve commented in other blog posts:
Lapham’s Quarterly Fall 2014: Time
(My perception of calendar and questioning Einstein are in this one.)
One can quickly get mired in philosophical debate and mind games about Future, Present, and Past. FuturePresentPast FuturePresentPast FuturePresentPast FuturePresentPast. I’m easily bewildered.
Can we keep it simple?
S’winter here this week. Pronounced ‘swinter’, meaning ‘it is winter’, in my personal lexicon.
This is the present, at least it was when I took the photo today:
This is what I saw as the future, which was recorded as a present, and is now definitely past:
The defense rests. I’m not sure I’ve hit anywhere near the mark, wherever the mark is, likely in the future somewhere. At least I used brand new photos, though I suspect taking pictures of the future still eludes me.
Originality is not my forte. I am an admitted copiest, so I will see if there is inspiration in other posts as the week progresses (into the future?).
Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.
Best wishes for 2020.
