An air of silence

Unless air is contained within something, bottles, air trapped in ice for millions of years it's actually quite free to move around. It moves as wind but do we hear it or is it just what it comes into contact that we hear. We talk of the wind howling through trees, an icy winter wind whistling through leafless trees, a gentle summer breeze rippling the grass.

I thought of Springs wind sometimes strong and gusty sometimes just a light breeze and what if I were take away the sound. There! I had my theme, my work consists of self portraits and images both moving and stills of my local area.
