Tell us the story about meeting her and whether or not you arranged her pose to any degree or just sampled what you happened on?

Wolfgang,

So succinctly put, unlike my wordy packaging of the same thoughts!

I should try to emulate your style!

This is the scene that I came upon while exploring a small town called Fairhaven Washington USA all I had to do was frame the picture!

Best, regards
James

Asher, Wolfgang

Thanks for the comments! I spoke with her briefly and this is the only picture that made the final edit the others have since been archived. I am reasonably happy with the image.

Best, regards
James

James,

What is your "archive"? Isn't that just a hard drive of all your pictures, or you carefully discard those you don't like and then store it a bank vault!

I particularly like this picture and would hope that you had more in the shoot equally as intriguing!

I really appreciate the combination of "architectural" geometries withsuch a fine pose!

Asher

Hi Asher

It is 16 terabytes of expensive hard drives! My computer is small with not much storage space so I like to keep it clean. My workflow is a super structure of efficiency and always current and I don't go back and revisit pictures without a good reason. I do keep a copy of my final edited images of my most recent shoots on my computer but only to display on social media. The only other shots were some test shots of the surrounding area. I am glad you like the picture that was presented, very much appreciate your comments!

Best, regards
James
