I LIKE DARK PHOTOS, HERE'S WHY
Updated: Oct 3, 2018
If you haven't been down to Midlothian, TX before
it is marked on the horizon by a few noteworthy industrial plants that look like spaceships being prepared for launch. Now, if you combine that visual with a thick bed of fog my imagination explodes and I'm filled with a sense of wonder!
I tell ya, fog is something that just captures my imagination and inspires me! The way that the light exploding from the darkness gets accentuated so potently fills me with question marks and drives me to ponder. I think it's just so outlandish, so out of the ordinary! Everyday scenes that we almost take for granted become endowed with an awesome ominous aura!
I think I love it so much because they remind me of my middle name. "Douglas" is probably my favorite of my four names as far as meaning goes. It is a gaelic name, and means, “from the bloody waters”. Pretty violent huh? But the reason why it means that is because it's a name that speaks of peace that was formed in conflict. the alternate meaning for it is “from the darkness to the light” and I think it really can be summed up by saying either “seeker of the light” or “peacemaker”.
So Douglas means:
"The one who has overcome darkness"
And that is who I am! These photos remind me of that!
Thanks for stopping by! Now...
Go be creative!
