02-16-16 Weekly Photo Challenge – Life Imitates Art “The Millennial Godot”

I call these images

The Millennial Godot…

The original:

“”Let’s go. Yes, let’s go. (They do not move).”

The Millennial:

“Let’s go. Yes, let’s go. (They leave).”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Time

“…takes a cigarette/puts it in your mouth” – Bowie

nope wrong song…

So you live day to day,
And you dream about tomorrow, oh
And the hours go by like minutes
And the shadows come to stay
So you take a little something
To make them go away
I could have done so many things, baby
If I could only stop my mind
From wonderin’ what I left behind
And from worrying ’bout this wasted time

Frey/Henley/Norman

The challenge is time

My answer?

Well, an answer, I believe, is found in this snowy portrait…

16-02-03 Empty Room

Someone suggested to me that I should do a series of images around the theme of “Empty Rooms”. Coincidentally that same day I read an interview with Sam Shepard, who I consider to be the greatest living American playwright who said in answer to the question “Where do you work now?”

“More and more by myself. Absolutely by myself. If there’s even a dog in the room, I get a little nervous.”

So he needs an empty room to write in these days. Of course, no room is ever really empty. If nothing else they always seem to have air in them.

Someone else suggested it was time for me to do more self portraits. So I thought I might combine the two ideas…

Here is an early attempt.

Can look like this…

“They are playing a game. They are playing at not playing a game. If I show them I see they are, I shall break the rules and they will punish me. I must play their game, of not seeing I see the game”

Travel Theme: Frame

“If I spit, they will take my spit and frame it as great art.”

Picasso

This week Ailsa’s theme over at “Where’s my backpack?” is frame.

I was looking back at some photos from the summer and found this one which I am working on for a different purpose but seemed most appropriate for this one as well.

Although which is the frame, I wonder…
