A concession tent silhouetted against the sky. What can I say? I thought this light and shadow was both surreal and ordinary, just beautiful. The man's hat marks him as one of the musicians. When a musician is not playing, the music is gone. This can be painful to musicians, so painful that they turn elsewhere for relief. This image speaks to that state of continual loss and longing. Beauty compels us to preserve it. Digital color photograph by American abstract realist Jo Brown, composition in white, gray, and ivory, taken at Briggs Farm, Nescopeck, Pennsylvania, 2012.
