June Landscape - 10 Months After Irene

June 20, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Irene 054a With the accessibility today of affordable, high quality digital cameras and readily shared information on photography techniques, we are living in a golden age of consumer photography. Many beautiful pictures are posted everyday to the web and the social networking sites where these images can be posted are numerous also. As nice as the images are, there is also a sameness to them. The question arises as how to make an image unique? How do you get someone to pause for a few seconds before clicking onto the next image? One way is to try and tell a story. This landscape is my attempt at a story. Even though 10 months have passed since Irene, some of the worst hit still struggle to recover. Just before entering from the south Plymouth, VT on Rt.100, this scene appears. Prior to Irene, the only noticeable sign of the stream to the right was the small bridge one crossed on Rt. 100. Even though I bike by here regularly, I had never taken real notice of the stream. The "sugar house" was also not very obvious. Now of course your attention is drawn to both. The owners of the sugar house live on the opposite side of Plymouth and their house there was also destroyed by the flood. For me a story existed that I tried to capture - the destruction of Irene, VT traditions such as sugaring, and the hopefulness for the future. Tamron [email protected], f22, 1/15
