"Diamonds in your own backyard" is a refrain from a kind of parable my father taught me when I was very young. If you care to look deeply, there will always be something close to home that can fascinate you and motivate you to make a photograph. I have an entire portfolio of photographs I made of the view behind our house in New York. I am trying to learn the different language of the view behind the house in Florida. I have watched this errant branch for months, but decided to make a photograph of it when it had turned color and was a significantly different value than it had been up till then.
