Every once and a while I go back a year or two in my photo collection to see if there isn’t something I’ve neglected. Given that I take quite a few photos and never throw anything away, “neglect” is a word that is a little too kind for how I treat my old photos.
Anyway, here’s one that I had considered for submission to a small gallery that decorates the fireplace room in the student center at Lake Area Technical Institute, where I teach photography. I eventually found something I liked better but today I am resurrecting it.
As with many of my photos, this one involves strong lines and light, obvious texture and a control of depth of field. A fence post and fencing are mundane subjects in rural South Dakota, but if captured right they can be interesting and evocative.
