The bells and stones have voices but,
unless they are struck, they will not sound.
One of the purposes of this blog is to bring forth the voices of ordinary things—things that are found in plain sight, but which often go unnoticed and unheard. To that end, the camera is an invaluable tool. By isolating something—more specifically, by eliminating the surrounding background in which the subject is usually lost—the camera can essentially strike the bell and bring forth a an experience that might have otherwise been missed. A few examples follow, and more will be posted from time to time.
