I made and scanned this image some time ago, like more than a year ago. It was shot with color film in the Holga. I see this tree everyday when I walk up Pila Seca and I love the early morning light as I approach this corner. But when I tried to work with it in Photoshop, in color, it just did not work. The other middle of the night/early morning when I couldn't sleep, I changed it to a monotone image and played with it again. I liked it but didn't see much chance for it with the public. What the heck, I uploaded it to Facebook and was surprised at the positive response I got. Of course these are my Facebook FRIENDS. Still this is a reminder that when I feel an emotional response to something, I might be able to capture something in the image that will stir a response in someone else.
