Injection Molded

I was photographing with friend and noted photographer/educator Jeff Curto this morning.  A rare treat since Jeff hails from Chicagoland.  Anyway we were discussing the photographer’s imperative of looking literally everywhere in the scene to find an element or composition that attracts and that may also be may be different than any that came before.  This is a tall task when plowing well tilled turf like Ranchos Church, last week’s subject.  It means, in effect, look beyond the obvious, perfectly functional money shot and find a unique perspective.  Today’s image is simply a stack of discarded fiberglass chairs lying on the ground.  When shot up close and personal they’re quite abstract and not instantly identifiable as chairs but as patterns and textures and shadows which are pleasing in and of themselves and not because they’re chairs.  The scene was the rail yard of the Cumbres and Toltec Railroad but the image you see has no such context.

Finding the image and shooting it like you did, Steve, in a totally different way. That is the key!
