|This Way Home II Textured Ed.|
The day I stumbled on this scene, it was overcast and rather dull. I had been wandering making some interesting frames, but as I walked closer to this tree stump, I stopped. I started to look at it and I realized it was pointing in the direction of the entrance to the park. I thought about it for a moment and wondered if someone bent the piece of wood as a sign of where to go if they lost their way. I made several frames, but it wasn't until later that I realized the longing of the image. That's why I added the textures. To me it needed a little more story, more of a sense of losing oneself, but leaving hope for those to follow in my footsteps.
