I have an attachment to photos which capture liminal moments.
I want to say these kinds of photos illustrate "betweenness."
How's that for awkward?
But this photograph offers betweenness along two separate axes.
We are between day and night, but also between the staged and the real.
Or is this all purely natural?
We get a sense of the supernatural when we feel that nature is playing dramatist.
There is a feeling of a "someone there," where there is ostensibly no one.
Or is there?
The supernatural is often just that wondering: is there someone there?
