Birthed in the high wilds of Montana, raised in the verdant inlets of Puget Sound,
found in the mirrored streets of Seattle, tested in the soft fields of Indiana
and now received into Chicago's broad, garrulous embrace.

OOF (Out of Focus Fridays) - "Mood Ring"
March 2012, Chicago, IL (Polaroid Land 250 camera, Fuji FP-100C film)
This is the window storefront portion of a local greenhouse. Image was taken on a very cold night, through the fogged window glass. I like this shot, even though I don't think it is actually a very "pleasing" image and I'm actually not sure it really "works." The colors, while technically warm tones, come across to me as a bit sickly and cold. And the forms of the plants in the window are completely unidentifiable as such. A fouled aquarium? Alien viscera? A generally poor photographic execution of a bad idea? Your call.
