On Second Thought

On Second Thought

Some weeks after first reviewing my film from this trip I spent an afternoon going over them again to see if there was anything special that I might have missed. There wasn’t. But there were a couple of photographs that deserve to do more than sit in a box on a shelf, so here they are.

Cliffside, Grand Canyon ‹ May, 2000

One of the frustrations of the trip was to drift past spectacular photographic opportunities at about 5 miles an hour. Slow ‹ but ultimately too quick for anything more than snapshots. Nevertheless some of them are lovely snapshots.

Cactus, Grand Canyon ‹ May 2000

The overwhelming physical sensation inside the Grand Canyon is that of heat. This photograph encapsulates for me the aridness and intensity of the physical environment.
