Bill Patrick is the MAN

Bill Patrick is the MAN

I have a lot to say about these photos, and I hope you will read this before viewing these latest captures of Pittsboro and Bynum.

I learned a lot about photography during this particular shoot. I was in a rather distressed state of mind on this day, going through a process of letting go of some things that I didn’t particularly want to let go of, and I went out to take photos and clear my head a bit.

My studies in martial arts, music, Buddhism and also in Chinese brushwork have taught me what an impact the mind can have on your perception of the world. In all of the arts I have pursued, I’ve always tried to follow the principle of abandoning the ego. When you are empty and free of ulterior motives, then you can really see the world around you for what it is, without any filtering of what you might want it to be. I remember in particular a brushwork class where we were all gathered at a pavilion outside, focused on the brush strokes and smooth execution, even breathing, etc. Suddenly an object fell from its place on a wall and crashed to the floor with a loud CLUNK! The teacher had us all stop and look at our papers- and there you could clearly see (on EVERYONE’S paper) a little extra drip of ink that flicked out in the direction of the noise- instant evidence of the operation of mind.

This day for me was an up and down struggle with mind, emotion, and ego clinging. There were many moments where I was so eager to get a capture, it was as if I sabotaged myself- poor focus, camera shake, bad angle, and the like. I was leaping ahead of myself in many places, and didn’t so much take the time to settle into the moment and be there with the environment, listening to what it was saying as opposed to trying to say something about it in my photos.

In art as well as life, I am much more concerned about the process than the end product. It is in that spirit that I have posted some photos here that I might not otherwise have posted, in particular several that have some quite obvious focus flaws. My interest here is sharing with my friends the process of my photography, and a bit about the internal process that goes with it- I’m sure we all have much in common here. I’ve included a couple self portraits as well, with twofold purpose- both to capture a bit about what I was feeling during the shoot, and also because I was trying to figure out how to use the timer! All in all the whole day was a very eye opening experience for me, and it is my hope that these photos will continue to give me access to the feeling of that day in my memory, and enable me to carry those lessons forward, both in life and also behind the camera.

Which finally brings me to Bill Patrick. It was in this cloudy state of mind, shooting photos in the ruinous (and somewhat hazardous) remains of the old mill in Bynum that I leaned out of a window for a photo and saw Bill standing there- I was so sure I was going to be run off. But instead, Bill very warmly invited me to come down to the lower level and take a look around!

I was amazed to find out that below the wreckage of the upper part of the mill, there is in fact a fully functioning hydroelectric apparatus, and it was my extremely good fortune to be there during one of the sparse times where Bill (who hails from Georgia I believe it was) was on site working with the equipment. I learned two very important lessons from him that afternoon- first, that ANYONE you meet is likely to have an amazing story to tell, and second, ALWAYS bring a pen and a pad so you can get it all down correctly so you can pass it on… so I’ll do the best I can from memory (Sorry Bill!).

It seems that the mill has been in continuous operation since some time in the 1940’s. There are actually two sections to it. The upper section is privately owned. Most of these photos are of its remains, long ago vandalized and thoroughly burnt to bits. The owner was forced to tear most of it down due to safety hazards (any way you slice it I would definitely watch your step, whatever you do). The lower section, where Bill was working, actually was the hydroelectric part. The mill sits directly on the Haw River, and just outside the gate there is an old bridge that is now designated for foot traffic across the river. This is all accessible from US 15-501, between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro.

Bill was telling me about the self sufficiency of the mill and the little village that sprouted up around it, that people used to go into town basically only once every month to stock up on supplies, but that the general store in Bynum and the mill itself (which was actually a grist mill if I recall correctly) pretty much provided all the basics for everyone. Standing in the quiet of Bynum with the sound of the river, the wind, and the birds, I can really imagine what a simple and pleasant life it could have been.

Bill’s teenage daughter is into photography, and is lucky enough to be playing around with an older SLR camera, so

Martial Arts Datasheet

Martial Arts Datasheet design template by Alexandre Braga.Showcased on Inkd.com.

A martial arts studio could use this datasheet to explain specifics about the studio along with information about classes offered. There are many elements used throughout the brochure that make it an avant-garde design- the color palette, triangles, type treatment, paint splatters. The powerful use of triangular elements in both geometric shapes and the shape of the text boxes gives the datasheet a feeling of movement, which successfully conveys the core objective of martial arts.
