Chris' Camera Bag
A Photo Web log by Chris Young
Sometimes photographers are at a loss to explain exactly what inspired a particular photograph. Sometimes the scene is just visually appealing.
In this case, the red maple leaves with green veins would trap any photographer. What I really like about this shot (and it took me some days and weeks after taking it to find a way to articulate this) is the contrast between the bright colors of the maple and the drab color of the fern.
The picture celebrates fall while hinting that winter is around the corner.
The moral of the story is to keep taking pictures. Don’t worry if some deeper meaning doesn’t come to you right away. Sometimes pictures can be taken for their own sake. Sometimes they have a message to convey. Sometimes, pure appreciation of the scene is quite enough.(1) Comments :: Permalink
