Gradated Luster by wroth Gradated Luster by wroth

Image Description:
"Lash lightning atonement, ice torrent anointment, can the rite withstood bring purity"

It's good to try to see to the root of things, here a root literally and the root of a process which will bleach this wood white in time, abrasion by abrasion, hour by hour. I enjoy mediating on natural subjects like this, and humble work like this photograph is a form of such meditation.

purity seems to be 'grace' within which each of us rises to, holds, and falls out of. It seems folly to wish for constants in a world of change thus a corruption could be purged and purity could once again emerge...

... but will it stay? It may, but it will again Change.

This is random, but I really love how the light on the water squiggles around, in pure white; looks almost drawn by a shaky hand. saves the peice from being oppressively serious/heavy, for me. :} Its like the colors are moving on different levels, completely different densities and not mixing at all. The layering effect makes me dizzy! in a good way. And the way the branch snags on the water, snags the focus, the little ripples like a skirt weaving from it.. very subtle effect. Personifies the little root without being obvious.

Also, cool title. Learned a new word.

Verb 1. gradate - arrange according to grades; "These lines are gradated"
arrange, set up - put into a proper or systematic order; "arrange the books on the shelves in chronological order"
2. gradate - pass imperceptibly from one degree, shade, or tone into another; "The paint on these walls gradates but you don't see it"
change - undergo a change; become different in essence; losing one's or its original nature; "She changed completely as she grew older"; "The weather changed last night"

Funny how that changes the feel of the picture--changing lustre, or systematic lustre? The two meanings are almost opposites.
