Lost and Found

Story of the ImageI’m always on the lookout for urban still life compositions, chance arrangement of human-made and natural elements. Like this lovely red scarf poking through a layer of leaves and debris. It wasn’t keeping anyone warm, but it did shine in this photograph.

This “view portal” that frames the image is a photograph of the ornate rim from the headlight of 1963 Chrysler Turbine automobile. I digitally removed the glass and use the rim to frame still life compositions and landscape scenes. The projections resemble the tick marks on an analog clock or meter and provide graphic tension with whatever subject I’m spotlighting in the headlamp.

Printed on specially-coated aluminum, ready to hang. No frame required.
