But in the early morning light, they create a mysterious landscape that I enjoy. This photo is an attempt to recreate that feeling by playing with the colours and texture of the photo. A photograph can be many things. It is a record of what we saw but it can also be a view into what we see. Snapshots capture what we're looking at and today's cameras do that beautifully. But when we are in a photo, we experience the sounds, smells, heat, cold, light, dark, taste - information that we retain in our memory, whether conscious or not.
Sometimes a photo can bring those memories back. That's what I'm experimenting with here. It will take awhile for me to understand how the various options available through this new software work and how they can affect the image you'll see. But I've got lots of time and lots of memories to work with.
