Sample Chapter

Chapter Title: “Incandescent Echo Flare” We have all observed a beautiful sunrise or sunset. We saw a circular disk of light on the horizon. The circle is one of the most familiar shapes we recognize. It is a natural shape. The very early experiments to produce the images were completed using a circle design. Like the iris in our eye, the aperture in a camera lens is a circle when fully open. Multiple exposures (three) of the initial composition of tiny lights were first seen on a 4" x 5" black-and-white Polaroid print. The image was quite exciting in this form, but there was no indication how effective the 8" x 10" color Kodak Ektachrome film image would be. Once the film was processed and displayed on a light box, the effect was like a spotlight piercing the darkness of a room! The daylight film had converted the incandescent light into a golden array! The most intense small circle must have been a tungsten metal filament directly in line with the central axis of the lens. The image created in me the desire to continue experimenting with a variety of shapes and colors. Each new combination demanded a continuation of the experiment, the results of which are seen throughout the pages in this book. It was additionally exciting to find poetry complementing each image as the poems seemed to flow easily into place. The definition of poetry itself lends truth to this combination of abstract geometric images and poems. For they are a language arranged to create a particular emotional response through meaning, sound, and rhythm.
