When driving around looking for images to make, I’ll often find a place to pull over and return to what I saw. On occasion the scene I saw was created by the motion of objects passing more objects. Other times the pre-visualization comes together. I whipped past this scene of abandonment along the roadside. I’ve driven by it many times. It was pouring rain. The window caught my eye first but the muted colors are what appealed to me most. The fabric, the cockeyed rafters made for two whimsical elements, and the warm tones of the grasses added color and softness.
Rising over the Sangre de Cristo foothills this evening the moon revealed itself as I watched it from the kitchen window. I picked up my camera and wandered outside on to the deck and set up. I could hear the buzz of a small engine aircraft somewhere off in the distance. I trained my lens on the moon … the sight of which made me gasp … then the ultralight trike ascended the ridge revealing itself. I can imagine the view the pilot had of the moon rising this evening. Keep an eye out for the “supermoon” on the evening of November 14, 2016
