Silent Night

Potato chip size flakes of snow were

drifting down.

 

I grabbed my camera and tripod

and began walking around my

tiny 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 light.

 

I walked up the viaduct and

spotted an old bordered up,

abandoned house

on the second level.

Snow covered cars and dotted the street

and it looked like a scene out of Norman

Rockwell's 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 impressionistic

 art piece.
