“Fall Bench” is a wall art print done with a prayer of mine as an overlay on a color photograph of a park bench amongst fall foliage.
The setting of the park bench is Issaquah, Washington (an eastern suburb of Seattle). I did a fall shoot in Issaquah during October of 2013 when we were living there while our house was being built in Arizona.
I featured this shot in a blog post November 26, 2013 called “Park Bench”. In that post I described how I came across this shot as follows…”there are those occasions when you are out and about and you catch something in the corner of your eye. If possible, you stop and go back at that moment. I have been known to make sudden side trips with a passenger in the car and they look at me , like are you nuts….no…I saw something. My wife has gotten use to this, so she humors me. I saw this in the corner of my eye the other day, but couldn’t stop and take advantage of it, so I had to pass it up. It weighed on my mind the rest of the day and into the next. I finally decided, I had to go back and take some shots now…unfortunately for me it was raining, a nice steady rain, but I couldn’t get it out of my head…yea, I ended up hiking in the rain to get that shot.”
Later, I added a prayer of mine as an overlay to create what I now call “Fall Bench”. The setting reminded me of a prayerful meditation exercise I participated in years ago…..clear your mind and picture yourself having a one on one conversation with The Lord just as you would with your spouse or best friend. Where would that conversation take place? Believe it or not it was a park bench just like this and I think that’s why it caught my eye that day back in the fall of 2013. Thoughts?
