Hoarding has its positive side. While digital photography has made it almost impossible to fail, there’s always a percentage of shots which no matter how much you tweak the light and colour, they’re just boring. When I came across this very easy technique for transforming an uninteresting photo, I was glad I’d kept my bad pictures.
I love forests and woods. In part it is because they represent shelter and therefore ‘home’, perhaps the ideal home, with walls that not only breath, but in doing so, produce ‘breath’ for the humans who dwell in them. Dense canopies of leaves are ‘sighing’ ceilings, which open and close in tune with weather and season and from which food falls a-plenty for nourishment of man, beast and bird. The forest is where man and creature can peacefully co-habit. While man builds his shelter at ground level, the treetops are tenements to bird and squirrel.
