15-09-15 Weekly Photo Challenge – Monochromatic Emmylou Harris/Rodney Crowell

One thing they don’t tell you about the blues
When you got ’em
You keep on fallin’ ’cause there ain’t no bottom
An’ there ain’t no end, least not for Lillian

Emmylou Harris

She doesn’t write that much but she writes that well.

Monochromatic is this week’s challenge

I decided to go with a classic grey scale monochromatic image from The Traveling Kind Tour (Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell) stop at the Beacon Theater tonight.

15-09-13 Weekly Photo Challenge – Monochromatic

It was in 1947 that the idea of a conscious monochrome vision came to me. … …Pure, existential space was regularly winking at me, each time in a more impressive manner, and this sensation of total freedom attracted me so powerfully that I painted some monochrome surfaces just to ‘see’, to ‘see’ with my own eyes what existential sensibility granted me; absolute freedom! But each time I could neither imagine or think of the possibility of considering this as a painting, a picture, until the day when I said: Why not?
