Diptych(s): Glee and Familiar

Posted on 4 July 2010 at 10:04 am in Photography.

Since series originators Miss Grace and Kellee are taking a short break from the Diptych Project, Nicole and I are catching up on diptych themes we missed during our sabbatical. First, glee:

Diptych: Glee

Next up, familiar:

Diptych: Familiar

While I wasn’t aiming to publish this photo in conjunction with the Tour de France, it’s a happy coincidence. For me, being in the saddle of a bicycle is a very comfortable and familiar place. My father is a lifelong cyclist and raised me to ride.

Nicole, a Mojave desert native, wrote about her image that, “the reason I was looking for a Joshua Tree today at the [Berkeley] botanical gardens was that I wanted to take a photo of one for a familiar themed diptych.  This was the closest thing I could find.  I think there are actually a few plants that look like this around in my neck of the Mojave, though.  So it is familiar in that way where something is really close to the thing you’re thinking of, but not the actual thing.”
