I wanted to interpret "Janis Zroback's":http://www.redbubble.com/people/paintability dramatic work, "_*Storm*_":http://www.redbubble.com/people/paintability/art/6407304-storm into Abstract Photographic Art, and she graciously agreed to let me. Here is her artwork, and my original inspiration.
When the storm came, it was like a roaring in her ears that would never stop…
Relentless it hammered on the roofs, streaming down the window panes obscuring the night…
Was it her tears, or the rain that was salt on her tongue?
Wind battered the trees, bending them to the ground..she felt their pain…the lashes burning her skin..
The torment of the skies was her torment… rooted to the ground she swayed in concert with the gale, twisting and turning, screaming with no sound…excerpt… by JZroback… _*The Last Storm*_
Abstract photograph of a concrete wall in Lockport, New York taken by JD Brummer for As Eye See Photography. The cracks and fissures seem to form a dark and twisted tree ravaged by a violent storm of wind and lightning. The graffiti adds a little color to complete the scene.
"_The tree the tempest with a crash of wood
Throws down in front of us is not to bar
Our passage to our journey's end for good,
But just to ask us who we think we are...._" Robert Frost (1874–1963), U.S. poet.
