Prairie Requiem


"How do you see invisible people. You look right at them." [George Webber, photographer]


It's interesting, you'd never feel alone standing here with a camera knowing only vacant prairie envelops. This palpable presence is completely authentic. Spring is ultra close.


In a bustling street crowd it's annoyingly natural to scale down the noise just to gauge the pulse. Too many voices along urban city pavement choirs. You're everywhere at once, a collision of information.


One may never know the specific intricate and faded stories behind these rural sacramental ghosts. I don't think that's required. Today they still speak in a softly lit respectful voice...a beautiful faded memory calling and whispering. You can also transcribe your own distant dreams and feelings. Decide where you fit into the oblong universe.........That's decidedly authentic also.
