“One should not only photograph things for what they are but for what else they are.” – Minor White
It was foggy in the Valley this morning and it stretched up into the adjoining hills. I know that fog can add simplicity and interest to an image – something I have been trying to incorporate in my images with moderate success. Had hope this morning that the fog would add to the images I came home with.
The first stop was at a local county park along the Mckenzie River. I set up underneath the I-5 bridge and started looking for simple abstracts. Found this one on a bridge piling. It has such varied color and pattern and I think age helps to set it off.
Moving upriver I came across this lone mature tree emerging from the fog in a wide open field. One of those classic images that a photographer is lucky enough to come across from time to time. Probably could come up with a good story that matches my life for this one but it seems pretty obvious.
Comments are more than welcome.
