CANCER

Covington, Virginia

I'd guess these two reference zodiac signs, but the reference is obscure. This is the entry to a long pedestrian underpass below railroad tracks.


This is about twenty yards into the tunnel, and pretty obscure as well.

Those two entrances are wonderful. Great use of the kind of light you profess not to like.

Thanks, it was a pretty weird place that yielded interesting results. While it was a bright day down there in the Shenandoah valley, there was a scrim of thin cloud up in the sky that softened the edges of things a bit.

If this distinction makes any sense, it's not that I don't like strong sunlight itself, but that I don't think a lot of subjects look good in hard sun. A huge exception would be my drive-in theater series, many of which are done in full blazing sunshine because those structures can look great in full-blast sunlight.

I agree. The middle of the day here in northern Florida make most things unphotographable to my eye. I go out early or late. We are blessed with a ton of clear bright light days. Of course that means that we have very few cloudy days and even fewer overcast ones. Thanks to you, I now treasure that light for it's softness. Sigh.
