    The Strong Survive

    2012 - 02.21

    There are certain photos that need no background. You know the ones that can speak for themselves without the pomp and circumstance.  I find that as I look for things to photograph, the pictures that stand apart for me are the ones without the paint, the ones that are absent of jewelry and cosmetics, and the ones that stand strong without the flash. The beauty lies in the strength of sterile independence, the will to stand despite all of the outside forces that wish it to collapse and fall. There are some beautiful old structures that have been rehabbed and expertly painted which are truly beautiful, but the one in the field just down the road that has been abandoned and left to survive or not, is by far the stronger of the two. For what it’s worth, that’s the way my camera sees it.
