These pictures are of a little spring fed pond on the back side of our farm…. I called this series Suspicious Mind because I have been thinking about what happens when relationships break down and to me these photographs reflect an uncertain quality. The bottom of the pond, the water’s surface, and reflections of the sky in many areas merge into a tangled color mass and the eye becomes a little uncertain as to what it’s seeing.
These photographs visually reflect what often happens when our relationships begin to fragment. Water reflections are similar to suspicious thoughts and questioning of another’s motivations, thoughts, actions, and so on. Slipping relationships become merky like the the unknown bottom of the pond. Being unsure of the direction a relation is taking is no more certain than a water reflection.
But beauty can be found… as I find our little pond to be a beautiful place…so can a trouble in a relationship be worked into something beautiful.
