PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: Sometimes I'm diving off a cliff into unknown. I don't know why I decided to render this image as I did or exactly what I was expecting. It was already interesting in full color. However, the minute I had done it I realized I had magnified my control over the meaning of the image. Even playing with only the color-to-B&W conversion of the house I had new power to shape, not only the nature but more importantly the relation of the two characters. Surprisingly, either could be made the protagonist. In the balance lay the intensity of the conflict. Anyone who wishes is invited to write the script.
I've been making photographs since childhood. Photography has become a way for me to explore the place I live and places I visit, but I know there's much to be seen in my own back yard. My favorite travel is through time.
This blog is a discipline and challenge to myself. However, I always welcome hearing how these posts touch those who visit.
