Oh how quickly these last three months of the year go, I can’t believe it’s already November. Only 49 sleeps until the fat guy comes and time for another One Photo Focus with the talented Stacy Fisher of Visual Venturing!
Here is my interpretation of this month’s amazing photograph of the Anping Treehouse in Tainan, Taiwan by Helen Chen of HCC Blog. The roots of a Banyan Tree have engulfed themselves around what was once an old warehouse. Quite amazing.
Looking at this capture I couldn’t decide for the longest time what to do until I was looking through the photographs recently that my father had in his army kit bag that he’d brought back with him from his time in the South Pacific during WWII.
There were photographs of comradeship and their day-to-day life, then there were some really gruesome shots of the harsh realities they were facing. The darkness within these photos seemed to highlight this reality. This is what I aimed for in my editing.
Not quite what you see here in Helen’s original photograph thankfully.
