Description This pic has several meanings to me and represented dual meanings my heart at the time this picture was taken. Ill see if I can explain that dual meaning to ya.First, the intent of this pic was to show how these old bridges are slowly but surely fading from their existence here in East TN. I remember being a small girl and riding in the back of the pickup truck, looking up and seing those green or blue colored beams go whisping by me. They always meant alot to me, and to see them going due to progress breaks my heart. Its a part of my childhood, and soon my children will barely remember them at all.Secondly, the view in which the pic was taken happened to also represented where I was at in my life at the time. My Monte Carlo was my life, my dream, my ticket to freedom. After being mostly at home in a bad marraige while raising two girls amidst my post partum depresson with both of them, divorce and the car of my dreams were all I needed to set my soul free. I seemed to put more miles on the highway than Ive ever done before. Always on the move as quickly as possible and never turning back to see where Id been. It was a growing time for me and very symbolic that I for once, took the time to snap a shot of just what I was leaving behind. Memories of my recent and childhood past. I guess in a way the photo is somewhat poetic. Maybe after you read this narrative, you can appreciate the photo as well.
A Different Eye Photography, Bristol, TN Member Since October 2010 Artist Statement I'm a 41yr old woman living in the Tricities area of northeast TN. I feel so blessed to be living in such a wonderful corner of the area.
I've been slowly learning about photography over the past five years. I enjoy capturing the changing landscapes, old homes, critters, and most of all, my children. I long for the day when I can purchase my first macro lens. The small details of everyday items fascinates me. I hope to one day show you what I can discover. Until then, I welcome you to enjoy my current and past images as I see them looking through a different eye. The eye of my camera lens.
