Winter 2009 - remembering winter in summer / by Let It Be Raw

These were taken on different dates throughout winter. The first two pairs on different occasions in Santa Cruz: on the UC campus during a forage and in the city at a park near my home. The last one in Uvas is of the feathers from a dead hawk. These photographs don't at all look like Santa Cruz or Uvas because they build on absence of place to create the feeling of winter through use of cold colors, rain, fungus, decay, and death. It's odd for me to be reminded of winter through feeling because I feel that I am now separated from that season/feeling, but somehow through looking at these photos, winter seems to be a place I can go visit in memory until the season comes around again.
