Daily Practice 267/365

Title: "Steichen's ghost"

I made this image when I returned home after a long work day. There's a rich tradition of making images with/by moonlight - there's something quite compelling about that isolated spot illumination. Although I realize that many will find the clothesline running through the frame distracting, for me it acts as a visual reminder that we see the moon everywhere - not just in an isolated park or forest, but just across backyards in the city. The pull the moon exerts on us is the same, regardless of location - a sense of longing and a call to adventure.
