The persistence of an idea


Rogue Telephone Pole

As an artist, sometimes there is that rogue idea that your brain won't let escape - no matter how small. I am often curious if other artists experience the same thing. In this particular instance, I was traveling to North Judson (IN) from Fort Wayne (IN) and passed by a telephone pole of interest. It was mostly covered in vines and had a large, old, decayed sign on it that was not legible. Traveling past on the road, I only absorbed its existence for about 3 seconds. I went about the rest of the trip, the day, and even the weekend, in fact.

But there it was, that following week, creeping in my mind.

"You should go back there and photograph that telephone pole". 

I didn't even know exactly where it had been, other than it was early on in my trip, and I mostly knew the route my GPS took me. So, I journeyed out and got the photos my brain couldn't move on without.
