This gallery is now rearranged and the new photos were added to these days: Day 103, Day 293 and Day 362 Much of the numbering is off in the captions, but the photos are all in the correct order now!!
You can see my new project here: http://www.tippiepics.com/spad2
I lived and worked on a horse ranch up on Missouri Heights for a few years, and later just up from Carbondale near Emma at Rock Bottom Ranch (other side of the Roaring Fork from Highway 82). My father was on the founding board of the Aspen Physics Institute, loooooong before Aspen was Aspen (in 1963), so I spent all my summers there from the time I was 4 until I was 28. I worked down valley year-round for three years. It's my favorite scar just because it reminds me of cutting through the alfalfa or oat fields after errant horses or dogs when I was kid.
Andrea! My SIL (sis in law) and her now hubby (the wedding I just did) were living there over the summer! I've been through, but never to Carbondale... Were you there for a while? Or just passing through?
And is it your favorite scar because of WHY you got it or HOW it looks? Just curious! LOL!
Andrea, the scar is barely visible on the middle finger. It was my intention to capture it, but this images was better than the one that showed the scar better. I have no clue how I got it, but i've had it since I was a small child! Just part of me, you know? Like a fingerprint.
Greg, the color is from post processing. This was taking by a window with indirect light - my absolute favorite to photograph in!
JPR, I agree. Sometimes you don't see what the photographer did, but it doesn't mean you can't enjoy the photo. Or often you'll see it in a different way - and that's not bad, either.
As a side note, I don't mind discussing in comments what the photo was taken for, but then again... I may not want to that day! :)
To me photos like beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, its beyond the first glance, like many on smugmug I look at a lot of individuals photos and will stare/study the image published, theres a lot to be seen beyond the main subject which is why true beauty isn't always easy to find.
Hey -- great reassessment of your project. I'm about to do something similar shortly, so I applaud you for keeping to your original goals and not making this a presentation for others but rather a work in progress for yourself.
