My husband and I went to Ridge Vineyards last weekend to celebrate his birthday and enjoy the last days of summer. We found an open picnic table under an umbrella on top of the mountain and from this vantage point we looked over all the San Francisco Bay area. It was a wonderful mini-vacation.
A lone olive tree at the crest of one hill attached the ground to the sky through its roots, truck and canopy. The image proved a fertile jumping off point for a variety of experiments.
Lastly, by combining apps Etchings, Moku Hanga, a Japanese woodblock printing app by JixiPix and Instagram , I created this softer look with a cool grape and warm earth contrast, hence Grapes and Earth.
It’s amazing how one scene gives so many ways of exploring what the time meant, what the place looked like and what it represented. A few hours of fun on a mountaintop translated into a few hours fun on an iPad editing a photo. Not a bad payoff.
