“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about, websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).
If you are a fan of fantastic photography, January 1, 2011 is most certainly a date to look forward to. For this is when the [One Life Photography Project] will be published online, and it will undoubtedly include some of the most incredible shots ever taken.
Take the image above as an example. It was taken by [Edward McHugh], and I find it absolutely fascinating. For it begs to question, “Was this an old school house or a church?” It certainly looks like it could have been either one, and then there are some mysterious hints captured on film. For on the left-side of the doorway there is what appears to be the shadow of someone standing erect, and on the right-side, there is what appears to be the shadow of someone holding a book. A Bible, perhaps? For a cross can be clearly seen through the middle window, or is this just an exposed part of an outer wall?
Of course, those are not the only questions that the picture encourages. For it appears to be smack-dap in the middle of nowhere, and there are no signs of there being any traffic of any kind around the building for years and years. So, what is the deal here?
Okay, maybe this photograph does not hold the same fascination for you, but that is the way art works. For what you may find incredible, someone else might consider not worth a second look.
In any event, I am quite sure that there will be something for everyone on display, and in the meantime, please pay at least a long visit to Rverspirit’s [One Life Submissions Page] and his [blog & gallery]. I am quite sure that you will be very glad that you did.
