Photos Recaptured

Reclaiming Past Images, Remembering Past Travels

After losing so many of my images in the great hard drive debacle, I began the enormous task of re-shooting the places that were most important to me. I am also trying  to discover all the images I have given to others from my collection. I still have a lot to reclaim, but I started with a return to Barcelona and the Colonia Guell Crypt near the Barcelona Airport. 4 years ago I had processed the images very quickly for an exhibition at Christ the Kung School. I saved them with such haste that they existed only on what became the ruined hard drive! They sold so well that I no longer had a print of the very best that I could even scan.

This June I shot many beautiful images of the exterior of the Crypt but not too many on the inside—it’s both dark, and photos are not permitted. I am really happy with the images I brought home. They are very salable because the images are very “modern,” warm,  and deeply sacred in their communication.

Years ago I had shared with Jean & Kate many pics I took with the first digital camera we had.  Jean just gave them back to me. There were so many pictures I hadn’t seen for 12 years. All are photo-quality but much smaller than those taken with our more recent camera’s. I found really strong images of Brittany: the menhirs and dolmens, the amazing 17th century churches in small towns, platters of wild oysters

and wild strawberry plants. I am busy transforming them and plan to showcase the altered images in small frames I bought at the salvation army. Spectacular! Some may easily become Christmas Cards. So much fun with Photoshopt.
