Today’s Daily Shoot assignment:
Make a photograph of something that is soft, or at least looks that way. Convince the viewer of the softness.
This picture was fun not only because I get to feature my cat twelve’s so very soft throat, but also because with the onset of Fall in Virginia right now the light itself is becoming softer, and I love this time of year. So generative (that’s for you Tom Woodward), just like getting back in the habit of documenting my days visually has been this past week. So invigorating. And I haven’t even blogged about my crazy trip to the Natural Bridge yesterday. I uploaded over 1.5 gigs of images and video to Flickr last night, and I think I have some raw material for some pretty fun stuff.
I hope you made it to Professor Cline’s legendary Foamhenge sculpture. My family’s lived in Rockbridge for eight years and I’m ashamed to say I’ve only been the Bridge once. I’ve driven over it many times, though, and it never gets old!
I saw the signs for Foamhenge, and I was totally excited by the prospect, but we didn’t have enough time. Next time we go back it is Foamhenge and the Haunted House for sure. And I may sneak in the Toy Museum again, which I loved.
And thanks for the link to that article, Mark Cline is, indeed, a roadside genius.
