Flickr Flickers, And Thus Helps Me Create Project 5 Parallel Histories, Every Cloud, So They Say, Does Have A Silver Lining – I Am Becoming To Be A Believer.

My old Flickr account is not accessible to post new photographs to, it does though let me see photographs from between 5 and 12 years ago, which thanks to the Monday Morning Writer’s Cafe became the theme for Project 5 – Parallel Histories.

The first 4 projects had the poem absolutely coming first. That is the poem was written and then the images were found to match the poem. I will call this Type 1 Video-Poetry

For Project 5 the poem was written with the images in mind, indeed the images, some of which you can see by searching ‘coastmoor Flickr‘ on google, aided the creation of the poem, and those self-same images were used in the video. I will call this type 2 Video-Poetry

There may be more of type 1 and type 2 projects before I attempt what I think will be called Type 3 Video-Poetry. That is where the video is created first, then a poem is written to suit the imagery.

Most days I would try to write a poem; it is a practice, as I suppose is meditation, or smiling, or watching the world go by.
