The Getaway Monday image for this week is Reno, Nevada and the famous sign in downtown near some of the casinos. This picture was taken in 2011 when the area was getting plenty of moisture including nearby Lake Tahoe with record snowfall. Playing with some different angles I noticed this puddle from the recent rain and positioned myself for the reflection image. Even at daybreak there were still a handful of people just heading out of the casinos after a long night of gambling.
A picture tells a story. With so many ways to tell a story, a picture not only communicates the vision I see but allows viewers to interpret the story in their own way.
The enjoyment of communicating stories through images has been with me since I was young, and it has grown over the years. Working as a software implementation consultant and now photographer my business and artistic knowledge allows me to look at projects from a a center point. This balance lets me refine my photographic vision and tell the necessary story which will make your next project exciting and successful.
