Still Learning To See

Getting there by ladder

As I said, for the upcoming “Going There” show (part of Montpelier ArtsFest 2105) I selected photographs both of places I enjoy going AND ways I might get there. Some of the latter were a bit of tongue-in-cheek, so to speak and one of the ways I got there was using ladders! Here are three ladder photographs.

The ladder above, actually a scaffold of stairs, led to the top of the Karlskirche cathedral in Vienna where the paintings on the ceiling were being carefully and slowly restored. It was pretty cool to climb right up into heaven and talk to God!

• Cider Tanks, Charlottesville, Virginia Had the ladder not been red, I probably would not have been drawn to this wonderful composition, but it was and I was and I love it!

• Washing Carrots at Pete’s Greens Farm Farm work, from beginning to end, fascinates me. The forms and colors of this simple image of a woman washing carrots is compelling, not only as art, but also as documentation of what it takes for us to get good food into our lives—and that is not an easy job!
