In the Shadows

Into the mystic.

Deep. Dark. Mysterious.

That’s what I saw. That’s what I felt.  Luckily, I was able to make a picture that has feeling rather than just the usual documentation of a thing or place. Let me tell you, that doesn’t happen very often.

It was kind of a fluke. Kind of photographer’s luck. Kind of what I tell me people who are suffering from a photography disorder.

It was a fluke because the dog and I normally don’t walk in this direction. It was photographer’s luck because we picked the time of day. It was the solution to the question I had been asking myself earlier in the day.

Together, all of this worked in my favor. Or, really, your favor.

The picture. From a technical standpoint, it was be there, see it, push the button. In post production it was more of the same. Most of the work was about darkening and enhancing the color to the point that I saw it while we were walking.

    What was the question you were asking yourself earlier in the day?

      Whether I even wanted to go out.

        Ah, gotcha 🙂

        I was expecting something more profound, as though the image were the answer to an existential dilemma.

        That’s as profound as it gets. And, as profound as it needs to be. 🤡

        I was talking to a colleague the other week, and she said to me “you have a lot of thinking thoughts. I have a lot of chicken nugget thoughts.”

        I’m taking a Zen approach to the whole thing. Act. Don’t think.
