Diary of a Rock Balancer ::
Stone Balance Art created and photographed by Michael Grab — 20/21 August 2016 — Colorado, USA ::
“The hippies of today will be the squares of tomorrow. . .”
My usual process is to photograph the life of each balance, which on average lasts a few hours. If they don’t collapse naturally, I end up taking them down after sunset (for several reasons). But here I decided to leave it overnight (as I sometimes do..), knowing I’d be back the next morning.
i took photos from both days and labelled them accordingly. .
Always interesting to see them after a night of exposure to the elements. Completely dry, the rocks appear timeless in a way– somehow wiser than before.
Unwittingly, I placed the leaves in a spot that received just enough splash to remain stuck, but not wash away. So, although i intended to build new, I decided to relax and continue documenting the life of this old square.
