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.
