Photographs and Memories; snapshots capturing a life in one moment of time, never to be repeated again.
Our trip to Arles France and St. Paul du Maison;in search of the creativity and madness of the Post Impressionist King Vincent, brought us to the ledge. Our search for creativity and madness pushed us over the edge, where surprisingly there was plenty of room to maneuver the manure.
These four photos freeze frame our trip:
Robert Eringer; seen behind bars of the Van Gogh Asylum (contemplating room availability for the night).
Me: I'm resting my laurels in Van Gogh's loony bin bed,(it was a short visit).
An askew street view of Arles farmers market, the possible source of it's famous pungent aromas). Note: Robert Eringer is seen darting away in his freshly painted fly-boy Flight Jacket.
Lastly, Myself; I am captured on film, caught expressing emotions-- somewhere between fascination and disbelief. I'm standing outside the immortalized Cafe de Alcazar, (Now Cafe Vincent Van Gogh), searching for a motif. I'm wondering, "Where did authentic Van Gogh Go?
Photographs and memories; snapshots capturing a life in one moment of time, never to be repeated again...for good reason.
