I made the above series of photographs a while ago and had decided that they were pretty much failures. Except.
Except there is something about that luminous winter light and those subtle tones. And perhaps I am reconsidering these images because I recently saw the visually sumptuous movie ‘Mr. Turner’ and these sort of ‘landscape sketches’ have taken on a slightly different meaning. Or perhaps they are still failures, I haven’t quite decided. Either way they are an interesting part of the image making process (for me) so here they are.
Different light on a different day.
[Each one of these images is a ‘drive-by’ photograph, made from the passenger seat of a moving car]
