Manhattan Of Trees

This is the first in a series of posts with pictures & videos captured in many parts of California earlier this month while my long time friends, Bilal & Ahmed, were visiting the States.

We started in San Francisco, headed North on US 101 towards Redwoods national park immersing in the beauty of the scenes on the way to Crescent City on the border with Oregon. The following YouTube playlist features 5 videos captured on the road and on foot while in Redwoods country.

The photograph titled: Manhattan Of Trees was selected by FWA Photo editors as Photo of the day, March 14th 2013

"the Silent Camera" was conceived in 2009 and was inspired by the music of Arvo Part especially his piece "Silentium". I perceive the modern world as oscillating between two extremes that are analogous to two of Arvo Part's pieces: "Perpetuum Mobile" represents the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the sea of people surrounding you, the noise in the streets, the deadlines, the challenges and the lessons to learn, the new technologies and risks facing our civilization, the musical pieces you learn [or fail to master],.. etc. "Silentium" represents the resolution of every musical note, every spoken word and every movement of your day. It is the moment that you are most likely to remember after the day's noise has settled and its turbulence has subsided. It is the moment that we all crave and the moment that will allow us to persist to the next day when the Perpetuum Mobile cycle starts again.
