Where Only Weeds Now Grow

Where Only Weeds Now Grow

A historic cabin outside of Yosemite Valley. I thought to photograph the cabin itself, but as I surveyed the best position, it occurred to me, the cabin is but a distant memory. It is historical only because the marker says so. No one lives there now, and what it was is all it now is. How do we create a sense of that in a photograph? We change the focus to what is there now.  I guess this has a larger lesson.  We so often find ourselves confused because our focus is all wrong, and the things that should be important or that should have meaning are clouded by a history that may no longer be relevant.  This is probably true in politics, religion, and even in personal relationships.  Look around with new eyes, and you may be surprised by what you see.

Prints of all my pictures are available by contacting me.  Each print is personally handled to assure the best possible quality.  Each will be signed and hand-held all the way to the post master.
