When I'm taking pictures I always see in terms of paintings
I might want to make. Big ass paintings. Oh, not so long
that I have to run with a brush from one end to the other, but enough that whoever looks at them can feel involved in the gesture the trunk
makes against the background, and the way the leaves shimmer.
When I take a picture, I don't want anyone to see "tree,"
"building" or "rocks," but just beautiful color and gesture.
At this point, the trees do a better job of that
than I will ever be able to accomplish.
I gotta long way to go.
