During my years painting, I always seemed to focus on small parts of things, not the entire thing – the hidden essence. In photography, I find myself still drawn to the plain or minimal. My last walk was into a field, shortly after a rain. The clouds were breaking up, sunshine coming and going, the wind was brisk, and the smell of damp earth filled the air. Yesterday’s lone bird, and today’s winter’s field try to catch this in each solitary moment.
Failure on my part to track and shoot, but the abstraction of this picture is, to my eyes, quite pleasant.
With best wishes to all for a new, prosperous, healthy, and peaceful new year.
Found in the Asian section of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA.
