Curves


Since we are all photographers at heart, I hope you won’t mind my occasional intrusion with a photo and caption. My own thoughts about an image might spark an idea for your own work or play.

If you’re from the Southwest, you have probably known about the church Georgia O’Keeffe made famous in Rancho de Taos. Every photo or painting of this monument is different. I think my image speaks to the contrast between heavy masses and soft, almost feminine, curves. It’s amazing something so organic could be man-made. I like it in black and white because it accentuates the lines and shadows that give it such character. Enjoy. And Happy Thanksgiving.
