Starting Over

Handrail and Sea

One can imagine this was Utnapishtim’s view of the world during the Great Deluge, except that the rail would have been made with reeds and bitumen instead of steel and bolts.

With washing away everything and beginning again in mind, I deleted all the content on my website today in order to make a new start with less frequent but better posts and better-edited collections. These collections will come in time but, in the meanwhile, I’ve posted one of my favourite photographs as a kind of good luck charm to ensure good photographic results for the coming year.

Here’s to a great 2018.

  1. Hi Marcus – and a Happy New Year to you too!

    Gosh, that is a brave move, but a very good photo – the rail looks symbolic in some strange way – here’s hoping it is a good totem for the years ahead – less is more and all that.

    I had never heard of Utnapishtim, so had to look him up. I’ve never read Gilgamesh either . . but then there’s a ton of stuff I’ve never read that I should really read. Maybe one day . . .

    Take care and good fortune.

    1. Thanks for having a look. It’s my dream to produce one photo as good as that a month. Even just a few a year would make me happy. The Epic of Gilgamesh is interesting stuff. I recommend it.
