While waiting out the rain in my car I thought it would be a good time to update my blog. I'm in Charleston scouting for my workshop that begins next week. Now about this picture... It's these kinds of little scenes that I find myself drawn to again and again. Whether it's out in nature or in a city I look for these vignettes that tell a little story about the place. They're about the details, but not in a macro/close up sense. It's about simplifying the chaos of a larger scene and distilling it to core elements on which I want to focus the viewer's attention. Well it looks like the rain has abated for now - radar shows I've got a little break before the real rain come later. Time to hit the beach!
