Head in the Clouds, Feet on the Ground
For this series I am using both vintage photographic processes, VanDyke Brown and Cyanotype together. These processes literally and physically help emphasize my feelings about where I live and how my life is going. I am using photographs of the landscapes around the place where I live for the printing of the two processes. The skies in these photographs are Cyanotypes symbolize the dreams I have for the rest of my new life. I may be dreaming about my future but my feet are still on the ground. The ground, farm fields, and scenic views shown in VanDyke Brown. This will connote the fact that I am grounded and realistic of the future ahead. I may have dreams and aspirations but I am standing on solid ground for the first time in many, many years.

This was titled after an inspiration poem by Mr. Longfellow
The Rainy Day
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The day is cold, and dark, and dreary
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.
My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.
Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
