This is the view from the South Side Bridge. I was crossing over on a Friday afternoon with the sun getting lower in the sky. A few cars were starting to arrive. I stood on the bridge awhile, taking photos when this lone person carrying groceries came strolling by. Perfect timing. PS: Man, that's a lot of windows.
Based on the hues and chroma that are contained in a painting, getting a good, accurate photo can be difficult at times. This painting is a good example. The entire work has a greenish-yellow cast over it. I wanted to show this un-natural glow as a way to demonstrate the uneasy state that has settled over the coal industry and the people who depend on it. The result, which I'm happy with, has made the photography a real pain in the you-know-what. In person, this painting has a real nice saturated glow to it. Here, online, you'll have to trust me.
