Leica M9, 90mm f/2.8, f/4, 1/4000, iso 160
Came across this scene on my walk yesterday. Didn't have much of an idea if I would like it when I was shooting it. Back in the office, at first it wasn't knocking me out. There was more of the plant to the left. I cropped that, and cloned out a few stragglers. This image really began to grow on me.
I tell a few of my photo friends that I have lost interest in shooting the traditional landscapes. Like stands of trees in fall color. I want to do work that is different. I think I'm beginning to understand why I'm drawn to Diane Varner's work. Her subject matter is nearly always something no one else has thought of. This is one of the things I enjoy about photography. You can branch off and go down roads just because something piques your interest. Watch for more "different" sorts of images here on the blog.
