Near and far could refer to anything that can be measured in relative terms.
For example, time, pitch, politics ....
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
Well said. Thank you!

Beautiful first entry, fitting this theme very well! I like the cyanotype best (composition, print).

My favorite cameras: Mamiya C330f, Nikon S2, Hasselblad SWC, Fuji GSW690 II, Leica SL, Leica M7, Russian FKD 18x24, Bronica SQ-B and RF645, Rolleiflex T, Nikon F4s, Olympus Pen FT, Agfa Clack and my pinhole cameras.
Here is my first attempt at Near and Far, both in time and distance.
The spirit of my grandmother.
My grandmother passed away in March 2013. When I visited my home country in September 2010 it was the first time in six years I had seen her, and I took a portrait of her. Then I visited a couple of times more, and when she passed away it was a difficult time; I still think about her often, especially when I'm out in nature.
I took this background photograph a couple of weeks ago, and thought of combining it with the portrait of my grandmother for this assignment, as a symbol of my connection with her.
It's near in time because of one of the negatives being exposed and developed just a couple of weeks ago, and near my home. And far because of the time I took the portrait, and also because it was on a different continent. Finally there is a distance between my grandmother and I that cannot be bridged, yet she is still so close to me.
I hope it qualifies, even though one of the photographs are not new. If not, then at least I had fun making it.
Silver gelatin print, about 6x9" size.
