When The Rainbow Comes


When I actually used to make pictures for a living, I used to travel to photograph advertising, some commercial and a little editorial work. Most of the pictures looked that way. Between professional “creatives” and my own limited skills my work often had a certain predictable boring look. It was what they wanted, so I did well.

I got lucky sometimes. I made a picture that went far beyond expectations. In the immediate edit I often forgot about it. I let it rest. I call that letting a picture marinate. I let this one marinate for 13 years. All the fat fell right off. It is down to its essence. A little post production magic and we have this.

The usual.

This is an example of what was expected. I made a few changes in post production, You get the idea.
