By Chad  ~  2008

 

Potato chip size flakes of snow were drifting down.

 

I grabbed my camera and tripod

and began walking around my

small town looking for a

picture opportunity.

 

As I marked each step with my size 14 snow boots, the sun began setting

and I was losing my perfect light.

 

As I walked up the viaduct I

spotted an old bordered up

and abandoned house

on the secnd level.

 

The street was filled with snow covered parked cars, but it reminded me of

a scene right out of Norman

Americana, so I took it!

 

I spent many months meditating on how to present this image in its best light.

 

While processing it in my computer, one evening, I decided first of all

 to remove all the cars.

 

I transformed the plywood boards in

front into windows with amber

colored light flowing through.

 

After several more hours of artwork

it was translated from an ordinary photograph to an Impressivistic

 art piece.
