Deck Thinking

Before the interview, between the preparations, a moment of rumination on longer term desires. Contemplative creativity beneath a springtime sun bath. Spring is upon us all.

Admittedly this came out of a need to grasp some fresh air and then a realization that this was quite the photogenic opportunity. It wasn’t even a choice, but rather an irresistible opportunity to explore this lighting scenario. I thought I’d put some flashes up, but simply redirecting the sun via metallic reflectors was enough.

A balance of gold and silver. Of warm and harsh. Harsh warmth mixed with harsh harsh. A luminous choice with a mix of stylistic consideration. Ultimately a challenge to conquer and create with.

Viral horizons await.

  1. Brilliant. Calm. Inviting.
    The best things come from morning coffee.

  2. Yup, that’s you! Incredible imagineering, as always, friend.

    And, what means “before the interview”? Might it be time for me to get to serve as a reference (please, please, please may I?) or are you soon to be on TV/Radio?
