Foto Art Friday – May 5, 2017
It’s hard to believe that a week after the image that’s the foundation of this piece was taken, the weather outside is sunny and in the 70s. A sudden spring snow storm had left the ground covered in 8” of snow as a result of the storm. However, as is often the case with spring storms where I live, the meltdown, or breakup, happens quickly. The day after the storm, snow and ice were melting, and I captured this moment of a drop of water leaving the icy rain chain to which it had been attached, just a second earlier. It reminded me of how, as children grow into adulthood, they will reach the moment when they, too, need to breakup from the familial unit and take the brave step to make it on their own. This piece is dedicated to that moment, when child becomes adult, and takes the first scary, exciting and exhilarating step to live their own life.
