Window to soul

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, philosophical. 
For more details - check out the archive, the first post, April 26, 2015.
If you like what you see here, go to:

The title is actually multiple choice:

• Window to soul
• Window to your soul
• Window to a soul

These might seem to be similar but if you think about it, they are not.
Read closely, and think.

This one blew in on the west wind, dropped into my head one night in a dream.
The window, shot somewhere in the Mojave, an old abandoned building. 
The cloud, shot from my 12th Ave SF rooftop/5th floor deck, many years ago.
The synchronicity, how & why these two came together? i don't know where it comes from, it just arrives, i am happy for that. Perhaps the window is letting this strange cloud into your vision for a reason? Does the window have some strange mystical properties? Your guess is as good as mine, it can mean whatever you think it may mean, photos are like that, any art is like that, it's all in the eye of the beholder.
I did two versions, one in the darkroom (above), another as a photoshop sketch (below), low res, but a rather interesting version, colored w/ pencils.

'Seeking the vibe' is still working it's way thru Amazon's system - it'll be there soon... i hope.
