The 4th of July in an almost-small-town in America and this celebration was directly across the street in one of the town’s small and pristine parks. It is an annual celebration complete with choral singers and the local symphony’s rendition of the 1812 Overture, complete with canon. It is an afternoon event and the evening fireworks are elsewhere.
So as I gazed out over the crowds of people who had gathered it struck me as the 21st century version of Seurat’s Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte (1884).
I grabbed my camera and took – A Walk in the Park – and I wanted the resulting images to reflect (to honor) an adaptation of a pointillist frame of reference. Digital photography modified with subtlety and without hesitation I give you, A Walk in the Park.
