“The insufferable arrogance of human beings to think that Nature was made solely for their benefit, as if it was conceivable that the sun had been set afire merely to ripen men’s apples and head their cabbages.” Cyrano de Bergerac
In our supreme arrogance we may also think we are alone in the universe, we are the only ones pursuing a particular dream or that we alone have the answers; I am not that person. I know I am only one piece of the puzzle as I strive to find my place. I want to create that which will compliment and expand the human experience.
“…there’s a fundamental truth to our nature, Man must explore…” – Dave Scott
Exploration and discovery is often a matter of perspective; danger is relative and more often than not just around the corner. Are we the watchers or the ones being watched? This is a journey with no destination and no guaranteed answers. I hope you will stick around to see where we end up.
Beginnings are always messy. ~ John Galsworthy
Mr. Galsworthy sums it all up so beautifully. The beginnings of Stuckinplastic, my beginnings as a photographer, my beginnings as a macro photographer…they have all been messy. I hope you will stick around as we work through the messy beginnings and grow into something we can be proud of.
In the spirit of beginnings I will show you my very first Lego photo.
It is not good, it is not memorable, it is not even in focus, it is simply the beginning.
When I took this photo I had no idea it would be the first step of an amazing journey.
I hope you cherish your first photo as much as I cherish mine.
