Day 30 was an odd duck (not literally). This was originally an iPhone photo and I knew there was something about it that I liked about the streak across the sky. But in a default form, it was a little dull. So I kept tweaking and tweaking. I had a general feel in my mind’s eye what I wanted it to look like, but not exactly. Michelangelo is credited with saying:
Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.
That’s kind of what I felt like with this photo – I kept working and working until it finally looked like what I expected it to look like. I’m no Michelangelo, but it was a fun, enlightening act of creation making Day 29, Sky Streak. Hopefully I will have something like this again in the near future.
