This is a different kind of photograph for me. I rarely use the camera in the car. Yet on this morning just a few days ago I had a thought that this might be one destined or this blog. I wasn’t too sure what the focal point was, whether it was the scene in the rear view mirror, the mirror itself, the clouds in the sky, or the bright red tassel that dangled from the mirror.
The idea that this concept would make for a good series of photos for the SoFoBoMo challenge came to mind and so the photo was taken with that thought in mind. I did stop in the middle of the highway in order to take the photo and realised that any such series of photos would have to be almost staged rather than natural scenes that I would snap as I passed them by. So, I will have to rethink this idea.
In looking at the photo now, I get a sense of an alter universe, the landscape of dreams. Here is what Robert Bosnak has to say about dreams:
“A dream is not a story, not a movie or a text or a theater play. A dream is a happening in space, an articulation of space.” (Bosnak, A Little Course in Dreams, 1993, p. 10)
