That’s the thing with personal projects. They get done when you have time.
Despite pushing my deadline back, I’ve been chipping away at the Pressed Landscapes project all fall – here are some results. I plan to kick things up a bit over winter and maybe even finish! Luckily, the project has been very enjoyable to me. I think that’s because I’m truly in love with my subject matter. Some may not understand the attraction – after all, it’s just dirt, grass, rocks and trees. On the other hand, what is a grand landscape photo anyway? Even Ansel Adams’ Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico is made up of…dirt, rocks, trees. Even the buildings and crosses are from mud and wood. The sum is always greater than the discrete parts when translated through an open heart and good hands. That’s what I’m aiming for with this project.
I’ve received feedback from some of you that you find the idea interesting and are keen to see how it unfolds. Well, stay tuned! When we’re back and rested, I’ll be wrapping up this and some other photo projects and interested to hear what you think.
