Dissecting a space, Words by Alan Whitfield


The spaces pull,
Under my skin.
No surface itches,
Drawn to the light.

Inside the whale,
Tentatively,
Contemplating,
Shafts of white.

A nasal breech,
Sawdust,
stale bleach,
Industrial fridge murder.

Christmas rush hush,
long gone.
Blaming lame public,
Purchase pessimism.

And you will stay no more,
No carpet floor.
A black corner.
No longer warm.

Im trying a new approch to my blog


Hello…

Having blogged for sometime i’m still not sure I really get it.

What is it?

What is your aim from blogging. Read, contribute, inspiration or just display.

Well enough of all that yesterday I went to the quarry above llanfairfechan in Conwy north Wales. I didn’t rock my world but it got my head and eyes working. Over christmas  went to a forestry commission log cabin. This is where I can pin point the old cogs
Working productively.

I thought of some words of how I was feeling while there. So yesterday I did some filming on the top of the hill. I also took some pictures with a real camera (well digital) so these are in production to make a little video with some words…

 

Steps, Philosophy and WordPress


Believing in progress does not mean believing that any progress has yet been made. Franz Kafka

Well a belated Happy New Year…

Or is just another step in the right direction. I knew I loved this image before I even took the photograph. Maybe I need to think more along the lines of seeing is believing. I often see what I have done but can’t believe that I did it.

If you look closely at the step you can see me clinging to the bottom step. Looking behind me to see that the tide is not encroaching me in the same way that my mind often does. You don’t see where the steps take you as I know not what awaits me around the corner. Returning to the tide that comes in and goes out. I guess I’m the same  I will always take photographs just in different styles some in a high state of mind some in low state of mind either rough or smooth.

I seem to have many directions at the start of the year in front of me to help steady foot my way to the top of the stairs. Yet unlike last year, no clear goals. I have a busy month with an exciting opportunity in  Colwyn Bay which is setting itself aims and objectives that can only challenge may vision and ethos for the good, while working in a totally new way. I have my work in the Galleri Open in Caernarfon at the end of this week. I also have some positive Filmic accessions to get excited about. oh and just reward in one area. I feel was disclaimed the attention it deserved by the powers that had more than enough opportunity than to just let it be!

Anyway Onwards

The Time Train


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After coming back from paris to my horror I hadn’t turned my phone off during the flight. There was a message asking could I work with Graham Copper on a train. Wrexham and Shropshire Railways wanted a promotional video and photos making in conjunction with Glyndwr University. The concept of The Time Train Was you listen to a story on the train as it makes it way to London. The theme for this trip was Charles dickens A Christmas Carol. Once I have finished the edited video ill upload it on here

I’m really proud f this because I edited the short advert for the university. I’ve not edited anything since April. Maybe due to fear, I think I may have over come this.
