The Tate Museum in London has a grove of birch trees in front as you approach the entry. This day was very wet and windy. The stark white trunks against the dark soil and the dark dreary day (and probably my desire to not stand too long in the rain) inspired this ‘painting’.
I had heard a podcast with Michael Orton sometime ago and was very impressed with the idea of moving the camera to create abstract images. It is not an exact technique which is part of the fun. Experimenting is what it’s all about for me.
So, this was one of many shots I took that day. The unexpected quality is one of the things that makes this such a creative way to use my camera and it feeds my need to create beauty from something that most people might not even notice.
