Beginnings is a series of photographs which inspired me to write the beginning to stories, without actually going ahead and writing the complete stories. The notion sprang up while I was looking at the image used in The Lookout and flashed on Manderley.
There is a wonderful book by Chris van Allsburg I read in 2004, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. The book consists of intriguing drawings and text that begins, but does not complete, stories for each. So, I guess this is
a ripoff of an homage to that wonderful book.
As of April 2014, I have made nine of these. They can all be seen somewhat larger in my Beginnings set on Flickr, or by clicking on the images.
