Still Standing

This shack sits on my parents property in Idaho and has been around ever since we built our home when I was 2 years old. For a long time it was used as a storage “junk” shed for my dad. It’s been recently cleaned out and sits empty. Every time I visit my parents I make sure I visit the shack and take some pictures. By looking at the roof it’s going to cave in if they get a heavy snow fall. I love the snow on part of the roof and the shadows from a near by tree and the southern winter sun.

The picture below was taken in fall of the same year.

The Portrait

I don’t get the opportunity to work with high school seniors these days like I used to. I’m hoping to get back into it soon. I love the one-on-one experience and the opportunity for me to be somewhat creative. I love this moment where there was a brief pause as we were waiting for the rain to stop. It gave me the opportunity to capture a relaxed moment. I love the texture of her hair and the glimpse of her smile. To me this adds a bit of mystery to the image.
