Every picture does tell a story.
Sometimes, it is overt. Occasionally it takes time time to process.
Intention is important. Was this image intended for someone else – to have an emotional impact on the viewer?
Or was this image just me? My artistic need to express?
Both of these questions are right.
If you have an image, and a story behind it, then the publisher of Coast Independent would like to hear about it.
The image that accompanies this post is of a palm plant and the planet Venus. Your publisher created it because of his love of the ephemeral. The palm, because of her feathery reach into the wind, and Venus for her eternal, mythical loving glow downward to Earth.
