It took me a bit longer to gather the final list of images for the exhibit that I will be doing at work, but I’m there! First of all, thank you very much to each of you for your input on the images, as it has been invaluable in helping me decide.
The amount of wall space that I get to use allows for around 10-12 images, plus an extra spot where I will put a larger print. The bulk of the images will be the Yoga Tree and the one print that is not was requested especially by the folks at work.
Here’s the first of the Yoga Tree images that are included…
The Wise Tree stands with grace and wisdom garnered across decades
This image is from November, 2013, before we had any hard frost, as you can tell from the fact that there are still quite a number of leaves that didn’t fall off despite having died; usually a hard overnight frost will cause leaves to loosen to the point where even a slight breeze will send them dwindling to the ground.
On this particular morning, I was really attracted by the cloud pattern that I noticed in the sky, which fueled my decision to go and photograph the Yoga Tree. When I saw her standing against this sky, in front of the rising Sun, I was reminded how she must have seen and experienced much across the decades, filling her with wisdom to be cherished by all of us.
Hope you enjoy your day!
This image was captured with an iPhone 4S using the standard Camera app. For printing, I did a bit os sharpening and some tonal adjustment in Photoshop. The paper that I use for this print has a slight bit of gold flake in it, which further warms the tones of the lower section of the photo.
