I’ve been in a creative rut for a few months now, and the Covid-19 lockdown certainly hasn’t helped at all. I don’t want to spread disease to clients, so any sort of business prospects are dead in the water for now. So what to do? I’ve started this 52-week project a couple of times, but didn’t finish it out either time. Nevertheless, I find it’s helpful when I’m stuck creatively, and whether I finish is secondary to whether I get unstuck.

Fences and Rails

I love lines in art, and this perspective has been staring me in the face since I got moved in here in Seattle. It seemed a good place to start. Our fence here needs a little attention, and I’ll give it some when I can, but for now I’ll use it as a jumping-off point for the 52-week project, which I hope jump-starts my creative flow.

Most of the lines in this shot are parallel or perpendicular in space, but I love how chaotic they are when flattened from this perspective. It reminds me a little bit of the staircase in the Labyrinth, or something from an Escher painting.

I’ll probably pick a day for the project pieces to post every week, and was thinking about maybe on Fridays. But today is Tuesday, and it’s as good a day as any. So Tuesdays it is.

I hope you have a great week, and you follow along as I post these pieces for the project. Now that I’m finally planted somewhere, I’m looking forward to getting my ass back in gear.

A few weeks ago, I began another round of the #52-week challenge photography project. I’ll post the pieces on Tuesdays, and this is the shot for this week.
