The Trials and Rewards of Architectural Photography at Night

With this lens
No wider

Already
Standing in the street
Wary of taxis and buses
The trees obscuring
Already

In my hands
No tripod

The light
So very low
Contrast
So very high
Under a darkling sky
Near the end
Of the sun’s
Long good-night

By this light
No darker

click-cliick-cliiick

Exposures times three
Then merge exposures
To become one
In a too-small frame

With tree branches
Encroaching
While taxis and buses
Approaching

Held that lens
In my hands
With low light
And this frame

So this print
No better

But then too
Not bad

Patterns of Opposites

I try to follow
The myriad lines
Creating the myriad forms
Regular and irregular
Symmetric and asymmetric
A cacophony of harmonies
Patterns within broken patterns
Broken again to form patterns

In them the complexity of life
Perfect imperfection
Destabilized and fortified
A confusion of order
A diffusion of resolution

I breathe in
The beauty of opposites
Comprising the oneness
Of being
