Putting the Sun in the Sky
From the conception of this design, I had a vision for how I wanted to photograph it. It was a wild idea & I was told on multiple occasions by many people that I was off my rocker. “It’s impossible.” “Don’t even try it. “It won’t work.” Or my personal favorite, “Just stretch it over a holla-hoop and let the ends hang over.” Yayda, yayda, yayda. Obviously they were forgetting one important aspect of my character – I admit it, I’m like a dog with a bone & won’t give up! Undeterred I started experimenting. It took MONTHS to figure out how to achieve my vision, but with the help and enduring support of my dad, we finally achieved my vision. So without further adieu, enjoy the pictorial history:
