A cool Kenworth came into our shop yesterday. It had this striking high contrast black and orange paint job, which really caught my eye. Every once and a while a nice truck like this pulls in. Most of the trucks just have solid color fleet paint jobs with some stenciling. Usually when we get something different like this I snap a quick pic with my cell phone for a keep sake. But this time I used my DSLR and I’m glad I did. I found an angle I really liked and decided to do a photo manipulation to it for printing. Having the RAW files combined with the higher resolutions give me the room I need to be as creative as I want.
This photo has special meaning to me. We were at Avalon, a great scenic park not to far from where we live. I was changing lenses out when I noticed my eight year old had walked up ahead of us. She was just about to walk out of the woods. She was exploring on her own. The way the trees framed her and the contrast of the dark interior of the woods to the bright sunlight at the opening sparked emotion in me. I took many pictures this day but this one was my favorites and for me, defined that day. Just her walking down a path on her own symbolized that one day, in the not too far future that she will be her on her own. Making her own choices and decisions. How my wife and I work so hard to help with her struggles and to support her. One day she will have to walk that path alone, with out having us around to help. Just hoping we’ve made the right choices and give her the tools she needs to be successful. The more I go back and look at this photo the more attachment I put to it.
