Photographer's Note

Lately, as I find occasion to wield my camera, I seek to capture light, shadow, and form in a way that imbues the everyday and ordinary with beauty and interest. My latest shot was taken on a small farm near the town of Amado in southern Arizona. The gourds, piled against the side of the farm's produce store, are a fascinating study. Their curving, languid forms seem carelessly draped over one another as they lay in the unrelenting swelter of early autumn. Some appear desiccated and sun-bleached from prolonged exposure to heat and light while others shy away in the shadows of their protective crannies.

I have chosen to present this image in black and white and increase the contrast slightly in post processing to emphasize the light and form.
