Searchng for That Feeling
I can't believe it's been this long since my last post. I've been busy but aren't we all? I'm working toward some new projects and trying to nail down what I want to achieve. I've selected the area of focus but I have not yet finalized what I feel about the area. It's rich in history and yet it's also in a stage of revitalization. I'm drawn to its history and yet all that's new is being done sustainably with the environment in mind. I'm leaning toward capturing the history in black and white showing a mood that exemplifies the industrial era but is that enough to make it stand out or is it just another period piece. I have a lot of decisions to make. Aside from color or black and white, there's contrasty or not, day or night, sharp or blurred and what special look do I want these images to have.
Right now, I have been driving through this area, collecting notes, and finding hidden roads to new offerings. I'm hoping that between the drives and reviewing this area's history and revitalization, I be able to answer these questions. For now, it's a whirlwind of exploration.
