My favorite Pictrue “Modern Museum” by Louise Dahl-Wolfe 1940
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Dahl-Wolfe
"Louise Emma Augusta Dahl (November 19, 1895 – December 11, 1989) was a noted American photographer. She is known primarily for her work for Harper’s Bazaar, in association with fashion editor Diana Vreeland."

This shot is from a Harper’s assignment at the Museum of Modern Art. She used two #4 Photofloods in reflectors, a 500 watt spot on the model’s head, and a #2 Photoflood in a reflectore on the floor behind the model for the back wall. "The model was posed in a manner that would show off the dress properly, and yet fit in with the general tone and feeling of the setting."
"The picture was taken with a Rolleiflex camera; 1 second at f 11, on Eastman Super-XX film"

Barren Tree
The patterns of this tree caught my attention during an "all too typical" grey day in Seattle. Many thanks to Art Wolfe for teaching me that you can crop trees from the top or sides since in the past I never would have cropped tightly and looked for "patterns and balance". When I print this, I use a black border to help keep your eyes in the picture…apologies for being lazy on this upload as white on white background doesn’t do wonders!
