Photographer's Note

So here I was again, ready to post a different picture…and then Serghei’s came along yesterday and made me change my mind. :) To link with his photo, literally and figuratively, I offer a wide shot of the area for context and space. (I hope this doesn’t mess up any of his plans to do the same any time soon!?)

He gave us a bit of a graphic look with the strong play of light and shadow right around the horse corral fencing at the Saguaro Lake Ranch here in Mesa, Az. As you can see just past this “’ol hitchin’ post,” and off to the left, is where his shot was taken. I’m sure this picture of mine would have been much more appealing with some actual horses here in the foreground, but limited time meant limited opportunities. We had been granted about 20 minutes worth of access on this private land, but between the two us, I think we snapped our fair share of pictures.

I wanted to share this one in combination with Serghei’s to show not only a different viewpoint and perspective, but to use as an example of how we all view subjects and material in different and creative ways to make for interesting images….assuming of course you find this to be interesting enough in the first place.

We had a great time, and it’s been fun sharing the places we visited.

Thanks for stopping by.
