A Flaming Portal

 What is this blog about? In a nutshell, it's about black and white darkroom photomontage. Every few weeks, a new image with a few words about it, kinda poetic, philsophical.
For more details - check out the archive, the first post, April 26, 2015.
If you like what you see here, go to:

A petroglyph points to a portal, a burning hole in a rock wall, a most perplexing phenomenon. When's the last time you saw a rock burning? I guess that might be called something resembling a volcano? Beside this portal is a break in the stone, a chasm between huge slabs of rock, in which a smaller rounded rock has become stuck in it's descent, trapped.

There's a small symbol at the bottom of the crack which means....?
What a contrast here - one rock is trapped, another reveals the distance.
Perhaps this is a geological version of the age old question - is the glass half empty or half full?
