This may not be an incredible picture, but the sad fact is it’s so much better than the photograph I was assigned to make on the same street (of something completely unrelated). I saw this tree sitting there and I immediately thought of Kevin Miyazaki. Kevin’s work is actually more macro then this, but the same principles of minimalism and graphics apply. He channels Irving Penn a bit when he makes mold look good. This photograph is why I try not to look at other photographers’ work too much, because I can be a sponge, a mimic, a monkey (my chinese new year sign). Thanks a pantload Kevin!
Seriously lately I have found myself taking way too many pictures of inanimate objects (which is not MY trope), and even sneaking a parking lot in here and there. I’m losing my mo-jo and I just hope I can find it when I head down to Peru in a couple weeks to work on a project I started last year (and still can’t show b/c it’s embargoed) about Peruvian coastal life. Yet soon all will be clear my pretties, very soon!
