This Way Home

This Way Home II Textured Ed.
While the majority of the photographs for the INVISIBLE project are monochrome,  I am also working on color treatments and textured photographs.  All the works were made using my infrared camera, but some just call out for different treatment in the digital darkroom.

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.
