p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · The Weeper


Itís been awhile since Iíve posted here. School is taking up more time than I thought. This is the Weeper taken last year and just the basics; sharpening, curves and conversion to B&W. I was walking around these stumps in the early morning light when I turned around to see this stump with some remaining bark that appeared to be tears. It made me sad but I wanted to capture that emotion.

Weepers. Neat find.
Have you considered a crop from the right to leave just the two sets of "eyes"?

I thought about a square crop but I wanted to show the clear cuts behind it as well. These stumps are approximately 7-8ft, 2m high. They were chopped down in the early 1900ís to salvage the wood before flooding the area for a reservoir. So not a typical northwest clear cut operation but they left the stumps in place. Over the years of flooding and drying out these stumps have lost their bark and have even moved locations. They range in color from a dusty gray/brown to rust red depending on the moisture in the air. I think it would be a wonderful area for an environmental art nude or cosplay photo project.

Thank you for all the comments.

These are great! That last one is how I imagine I look and definitely how I feel when I wake up in the morning.

I would love to know your process for conversions... I am still learning and am not very good at b/w conversions. Would love a PM of some tips.
