Get in really close and enjoy the light coming off the differently textured surfaces. Some of my shots of this view were in colour and it remained unspectacular to me. It was the high exposure, black & white image that popped! It felt like a close-up of a mud-clay and straw sculpture… something deeply symbolic of the environment in which the artist lives. All the pigments come from the earth and are bleached by the sun. Where we cannot see these colours, we can almost feel them… at least the temperature of them.

It continuously amazes me how the use of greyscale seems to petrify and preserve the life of what we see. It makes the image so deliciously complex, intriguing, and welcoming. Welcome in and tell us what you see???
