I really appreciate the conversation between documentarian and subject born by the process of this photograph. Reflecting on how the variety of chosen objects came together to create this photograph, I am struck with nature’s desire to reclaim what man builds.
The color orange will challenge you. It’s not one that just likes to blend in with the crowd. And not every shade of orange has what I consider to be an aesthetic appeal. But every now and then, I stumble across a glorious shade of orange that stops me in my tracks.
This particular image caught my attention for a variety of reasons, but the light and dark highlights really help these tones pop to what I felt was a wow status for the color orange. I was grateful to capture it so I would have it to appreciate again and again.
These colors and textures are fascinating! But what I find the most intriguing are the shadows which were created by the nearby plants blowing in the wind. All these elements combine to evoke memories of pleasant times.
This photograph was actually taken from a park in downtown Aspen.
Lately, I have been fascinated with reflections.
Reflections allow for a layered composition of textures and visuals, creating a unique, multidimensional image.
