To those of you wondering where I’ve been, I apologize. I took an unexpected hiatus from the 50 day adventure as inclement weather and some other personal things took necessary priority. I plan to continue the adventure now, and hope you’ll stick with me as I try to finish this grand escapade.
As you may have read in an earlier post, I have caught up in the Wheel of Time series, having read all 13 books. I now eagerly await, as every other fan of the epic saga, the conclusion set to be released in January of 2013.
I was having coffee with a friend today at the local bookstore when, while waiting for him to arrive, I happened upon the Fantasy section. Under the New Releases I saw the first 3 novels of my beloved series. Much to my surprise, I learned that the series is undergoing a trade-paperback re-release with a new art style for the covers. They are minimalistic and showcase what would appear to be a scene from each book as viewed through a picture frame. As I am getting back into the series, I bought them to add to my collection. My first set of the novels is a smattering of hardcovers and mass market paperbacks, so for this republication I plan on owning all 14 in a uniform style. It’s just a pet peeve of mine. :)
an idea at home
On the way home I decided I wanted to make some sort of composition using the books. Well, I love clocks and dragons. This happens to be perfectly in line with the series: the central character is someone called “The Dragon Reborn” and the central theme is the way the past, present, and future affect the characters. Having said that, I started playing around. It’s late at night and I don’t think this is exactly what I was going for, but I am determined to continue this photography adventure with whatever I can scrounge up for the day, regardless of quality. (I suppose that nullifies my earlier argument about inclement weather, but I promise I did have other priorities taking precedence!! :P) At least 1 more of the trade-paperback renditions should be released before the 50 days are over so you can expect another composition including the novels around that time. I am by no means, however, excluding the possibility of the books ending up as subject matter again before that day comes. :)
the final product:
