Time Changes Memeories
Some months after I joined Instagram (just over a year ago), I was introduced electronically to Darryl (@darryls_world) by another fellow Texan. I do not know if there is something unique about Texans but something always seems to unites us. Weather its the landscape or the accents , we never seem to be strangers. Maybe it was this Texanism that caused me to feel an instant connection to Darryl’s imagery or maybe is was some thing else all together. Darryl’s images are both dark and beautiful. They are desolate and foggy in a way that is like dream that is not quite scary but not quite safe and cannot be remembered to its fullest. Although Darryl has only participated in SundayBlues a few times, this image from last week pulled me completely into his world.
Darryl: Memories from the past obscured in a strange way fascinates me. Time does strange surreal things to our memories the same way dreams do. These thoughts are what brought this image about.
I have had no formal teachings in art. Last spring I purchased a couple of apps to touch up some family pics and ended up really enjoying myself. I learned that I could change the entire mood of a image and make it feel the way I felt about it. So I started shooting and editing everything and joined instagram shortly after….
I really haven’t looked back since then. I still shoot mostly with my iPhone and they look excellent in large format on gallery walls. My work currently has a home in a gallery in downtown Denison, Tx. and I’m hoping this is just the beginning. I love to shoot, I love to edit and I love to create. It’s like a beast that has to get out on a daily basis.
Even if you’re not from Texas, you will love Darryl’s images.
