Long Road Out Of Eden

Joshua Tree, in the national park of the same name.
California. June 2009.

The picture you see here is a combination of the original colour photograph and a sepia version of the same photo; by doing this you get the kind of reduced, desaturated colours we know from movies like "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"... it's a great way to illustrate what it feels like to actually be there in that place, out in the desert. In addition, it's the first square photograph to appear on this blog. I'm not shooting with a fancy, super expensive camera like the Hasselblad, but the huge image size of the 5D Mark II allows me to crop pictures into a square format without them becoming too small.

It's my 21st birthday, so I gotta go and eat some of my favourite apple pie now.

Have a nice weekend / week!

- Dom
