Photograph as Metaphor
In a real sense, a photograph is a metaphor for a window into the past. Then a window into the past in a photograph is a double metaphor or a metaphor within a metaphor. Can something be a metaphor of itself? This photo of a window in the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works is a window into the past in an active and currently productive pottery and tile factory in Pennsylvania. This amazing place is home to both the oldest of crafts and the most recent of trendy designs. I will share several photos of this wonderful building and enterprise over the next few days.
