A few weeks ago I was working on images for another photo scavenger hunt (see images from the last hunt here). I had the idea of working with fabric but wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do with it. I was trying to come up with a location when I recalled visiting the Rosicrucian gardens in San Jose a few years ago. I remembered a fountain and bright colors.
So with a very rough idea of using fabric and the fountain as a backdrop, my friend and I headed over. Unfortunately, I managed to pick the one of the days the temperature hit over a 100 F. But fortunately, I discovered a very interesting building at the back of the gardens with pillars and an open ceiling. We added the fabric to the shot and this image was the result. I love the dramatic feeling of this image!0
