Driving the backroads usually has a payoff for the adventurous, but patient photographer. This tobacco barn was a welcomed reward after a long dry spell traveling through rural Ashe Country, North Carolina last fall.

Cheers!

I captured this stately old juniper in the Mangum Desert exhibit at the North Carolina Zoo, in Asheboro.

Tracing Light

The light in this stairwell at the Moses H. Cone mansion on the Blue Ridge Parkway made me think about “ray tracing”. Its a computer animation rendering algorithm that simulates the path particles of light take from the source angle as they bounce off various surfaces. I’m also reminded of Bob Heist’s lesson in Basic Photography at Randolph Community College back in the early 80s – “the angle of reflection is equal to the angle of incidence”.

Back in 2015 I found this gem on the backroads of Forsyth County, near Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I must have gotten busy and never got around to reviewing and processing. By accident, I came across it again a few weeks ago. I’m sure there are other forgotten treasures in my catalog. If only I had more time for treasure hunting!

Cheers!
