photoart friday: invisible threads

This week’s PAF theme, ‘connections’, immediately made me think of roads and railway, phone lines and mail – in short all the ways we can link up with others. Perhaps that’s because this weekend there is going to be a birthday party and family get-together which means I’ve little time for extensive photoart edits.

St Pancras station is my starting point. It contains so many memories from my schooldays of leaving and arriving, separating and re-joining,  and is a monumental linkage to the UK as well as the Continent. This sense of inter-relatedeness is underwritten in myriad journeys and inscribed in the architecture of glass spider-web roof, cross-ties and girders.

I’ve emphasised the concourse structure with high-definition, and then added the SPE ‘two-for-one border’ which overlays one image on another so that with a 180 reflection effect, the whole opens out into a fan of connections. I completed the photoart with a quote from Nietzsche to tie up with others in the photoart friday gallery.
