|In the middle of the storm|
Photo by Dahlia Levy
She's studying photography in college now, and she's already way better at using pixels to tell stories than I ever was or will be. And in this one picture that has stuck in my mind since the first time she showed it to me, she's taught me that color is often found in the last place you look, and even when the skies threaten with substandard light and lens-fouling snow and ice, you find a way to shoot.
Because squeezing something worthwhile out of a challenging day is so much more rewarding than simply phoning it in when conditions are perfect. It's a lesson she's already learning so well, and I can't wait to see what she shoots next.
Your turn: What else do you want to see through Dahlia's lens? (She takes requests, so...)
I can't believe she's in college....omg... I love those red doors.. very unique.. usually red doors are associated w/barn doors ( at least its common in the U.S.).... I hope she adds this photo to her portfolio... love the clean lines... As far as photos- how about trees? trees are gorgeous w/snow...
Paths, all sorts of paths, they can tell a story in themselves. I just love that winter pic of hers, the contrast between the colours, the horizontal and vertical lines, and just the simplicity of it which tells so much.
That's a fabulous shot!
In college already?? Isn't it scary how quickly time goes...
She is right! Sometimes, finding the shot is a problem, but it is almost always out there.
We are still waiting for winter and/or autumn out here. Based on what we all heard on the news we were supposed to have an El Nino year. It totally missed most of southern California.
