A View Through the Arch

Through the tunnel

view through a dream’s ambiguous clarity

visions conjured from yesteryear’s depths

unchanging necessities amidst the hubbub

I’ve had this picture sat in my media file for nearly a year, now, but have been unsure whether or not to actually share it. It was a very quick shot, snapped as I walked past the Newport Arch in Lincoln with my sister – luckily with my camera in hand, unluckily, without the time to stop to focus the shot. Usually I’d just ignore an out of focus, blurry picture in favour of the clearer shots, but this one caught my attention. It reminded me of an impressionistic painting.

Then I uploaded it to the blog and just went, ‘hmm’. Instead of being shared, it ended up languishing in the depths of my media file.

Well, I thought I’d pull it out and dust it off, and write a few words to go with it.

I’d love to know what you think.

    1. Thank you, Buddy. I hoped the words would affect the reader’s view of the picture, giving a glimpse of my own take on it. I’m pleased to know it worked. Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂


  1. I love the quote, “view through a dream’s ambiguous clarity, visions conjured from yesteryear’s depths.” What a inspiring metaphor for the arch.
