You know, I see the resemblance to a tapestry here. Needlework. All the fine detail seemingly on one plane, evened out by that pale early light. I’m glad you do landscapes as well as the bacteria and dumpsters and, and. ..

Thank you, Lynn. This is one of those photos I thought I would not post. Then I ran out of time to create a different post, and I had this photo all processed for another use, so . . . . It’s funny you mention “all the fine detail seemingly on one plane.” Other people have pointed out the flatness of my images. Some is very obvious, like my photographs of the shale shore of the Vermilion River, but others—I don’t know: why and how do I do that?

I think it’s an aesthetic preference, which is probably tied into our emotional selves. We see things in a certain way and take photos that express that, even when we’re not consciously doing that – I think. It’s a look that I like, but then of course we all mix it up sometimes, and make photos that are different from our own norms.

And even more to be there in person. This was the first time I had been in these woods, a short walk from my front door. It was a lovely discovery with, as you say, lots of atmosphere in the early light.
