My image titled Non Migratory Patterns was accepted into the On-line Annex Exhibition at Black Box Gallery. The call for entries was Field Work: Landscape and Architecture, which has been a large part of my concentration since moving west. My fascination with the land structure and life here has been fueling much of my creative processes. This image in particular was taken on a point and shoot 35mm camera that I have since gifted to a pen pal after their similar camera bit the dust. A coworker originally gifted it to me and I wanted to pass the kind gesture on. 

The image has a softness to it that is challenged by a crisp repetitive focus on texture. Both the soft focus and the color palette contribute to an ethereal feel. In the moment, I felt just like that bird, staring out over this vast landscape as if the possibilities it encompassed would swallow me whole.
