This yard is one that I have attempted a few times. It is so busy. There is so much going on in this yard. There is even a 57 chevy buried in the front yard. It’s almost hard to find a picture in an area like this. I am really a “parts of the whole” type of photographer. I like to leave some things to the imagination. That is incredibly hard in this yard. It is about a quarter of an acre with a garage. It is not very big by any means. I can’t help but think that this home owner was born to be wild. (yes, queue up the music)
The snow is tall this year. It added a barrier that did exactly what I needed it to do. It gave me a focus point. It allowed me to blur or dull down everything else going on behind the snow. Somehow it becomes clearer because of that.
A very smart person told me that everything you do in a picture should be with intent. You should also know why you have that intent. It was a great lesson that helped me with this picture.
Once again nature stepped in to add what I could not. That is a statement of appreciation and gratitude. Especially as I take more steps for my solo show I realize more and more how much a roll nature has played. It shows up in all of my constructive pieces in some way.
