Today I wanted to talk to you guys about the depth a photograph can have and the meaning it can represent. As some of you may know the old saying ” a picture is worth a thousand words” well it can be very true to some as others would say more like ten words. I am not going into a thousand words with about this photograph, but what I do want to cover is how a photograph can make you see a new perspective, give you new meaning and hopefully give you a sense of what the photographer is trying to explain to you. The stories behind every photograph come in big or small, in depth and faded meanings but they all have an origin to which they came from. For me in this particular photo came from a cross country road trip that swept us through the great plains into the rockies, then we ran alongside the grandest of canyons and through Arizona as we were making our way to El paso, Texas, I decided to take a detour to white sand national monument which landed us in the absolute middle of know where. Once we made it to the park the sand formed into rolling hills. The sand looked as if the desert had a wintery snowstorm just pass through. As we pulled off to the side we got out of the truck to take a closer look and feel the sand in between our toes, the temperature was 101 degrees fahrenheit and the sand was much cooler and comfortable than I would have guessed. As the rolling sand hills surrounded us there was a complete relaxation and calming presence. The sun started to set and the colors were if the sky was full of pink and blue cotton candy. In this photograph I wanted to capture the essence of the patterns the sand formed. What this represents is, without the color you focus on the patterns of the sand then work into the clouds above. With color you would tend to focus on the reflection of the sand from the sun which was a light pink with a creamy blue sky.
