New Series of 55s from Gretchen Chapman-Collins: Photograph 1 and Photograph 2


So apparently Gretchen’s writing image-istic 55s from the perspective of a photographer. Here’re the first two:

Photograph 1

The river, finally, swollen from the melting of the last spring snow. It was the river from his childhood, the one he had seen in the gutter, in the city streets, foaming and cocky with muddy rain. Like it could be so much bigger, a river. Like it could swallow him, the city, the world.

The snow almost covers the outlines, but occasionally something pushes through, some rusted, jagged edge of a something that used to be something. Junk, in the winter, abandoned. As he takes in the metal gleams against the white, he can’t shake the feeling that they’re drowning. Can’t shake the feeling that they’re calling for help.
