John Bonner, artist and filmmaker set me an interesting challenge when I approached him for a piece view for the 'View from' series. He said, "I'll describe the view in words and you can translate these words into a picture." "I'll send a photo after you've done the picture"
Here is the text and the photograph John sent afterwards later. By the way, do enjoy John's short films here
A view from...
We both noticed it. At night. When the motion detector flood light is triggered by a rabbit. The fieldstone path leads from our back window to the wooden garden gate, set in a stone wall made by cattle farmers over a hundred years ago. Beyond is only the blackness of the forest. The flood is attached to our cedar-sided shed, on the left, and the area it illuminates, comprising the gate, the wall, and the path through the lawn, look uncannily like a stage set. Perhaps it’s the way the background appears to be black, but it’s as if the curtain has just risen, revealing a tableau lit by single light.
We find ourselves waiting for the actors to make their entrance.
Here is the actual scene - John's photo
AGAIN John's YouTube channel Art Stories. Shameless and unsolicited plug:)
