Much Closer to What My Mind's Eye Thinks it Saw, 1986/2013 (not Indian Island, but is behind the Pepsi plant near Target).

As I said before, this blog is about my photographic and personal journey as a photographer and as a person. I think this image conveys some of the essence of that journey.

I saw this image in the nineteen-eighties, and I photographed it then. The processed negative sat for nearly thirty years. I rediscovered it, and have now actually worked it to its fullest potential (or nearly so).

I feel a synergy with my forty-year-old self. It is as if the current Tom and the earlier Tom are bridging the space-time continuum, and am somehow both are present simultaneously in past and the present.
