Hello Yellow!

Hi there

This is the first post – I guess I have to explain the yellow corner.Yellow for those who know me and know Latitude 34 has become a signature colour.

How did it start? I have no idea really when yellow became my colour but it took on a whole different scale with this picture The Yellow trip - a self portraitand the fact that I always wear a yellow jacket too which features in a lot of my self portraits too.

Yellow Arizona Self Portrait

These two photographs are from my project called latitude 34 they are candid impromptu photos taken while I drove  though latitude 34 , I had those shoes in the trunk, I saw the yellow line for hours in front of me. At some point in the desert of mojave I saw this vsion, I stopped and took the photograph. For the second one I drove through  gorges Arizona from Cottonwood to Flasgtaff, the trees were yellow. I had that vision too and didnt stop. It bugged me, I turned back 40 miles to get the shot and continued back on my way.

Yellow is a happy colour for me and I seek to brighten the day even when I am blue or something is wrong. That is not to say that I deny, refuse or dismiss hardships, they make me grow, I just like to shine a light through them. As you know some of the most beautiful landscape shot can be those with a grey sky lit by a ray of sunshine, or a rainbow. But that will be a whole other post!

Why the corner? it is a space where I can put post-its, write stuff on the wall, pin notes, hang my art work, hang my ideas like i would hang my clothes, retreat to think, have a long chair to read,  meditate and daydream, a skylight to look at the sky a secret door to escape. It coudl only be yellow.
