Here's another ice photo I took this afternoon during a walk through Lakeshore Park:
This depicts an area, I'd guess, less than six inches across. In this case I'll admit to a bit of tampering: I came upon a frozen stream of broken ice--giant lethal-looking shards--and put a couple together--one on top of another with a third placed to the side--to create the final product. What initially struck me was the interesting dispersement of bubbles, but as I further composed the image, I noticed that the flowing lines and subtle frosty surface texture played nicely against the bold (and oddly symmetrical) geometry of the circular air pockets.
So although my drawing efforts have unfortunately diminished over the last couple of years, I'm glad at least to recognize I still have a decently artistic eye. I haven't given up drawing and still continually aspire to find inspiration and active motivation somewhere, but in the meantime I'll probably just keep playin' with the camera.
