The second I saw these bare trees on a hill against the cloudy gray sky with circular cone building on the side, I thought it would make a good grayscale photo. And I was right! like it. The trees were getting fuller with new buds. There was no one person in my view. There are lots of shades of gray in there. And the angular perspective makes the trees more dominating. It would have been great if the clouds had more texture, but I was not going to wait for that.
It was an April day at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum near Boston. The winter still hung around that day, and the white and black edition gives it the familiar desolate feeling of longing for spring.
