Overhead Projections - Part Four

Larry Torno

On December 27, 2009, I posted a series of photos taken in the same location, but over a course of several years, with dramatically different views. In the three images presented here, I wanted to show again, how going back to a certain location time after time, often yields new opportunities for photos.
     The first image, Jaws, is actually a rest station/shelter that overlooks a naturally growing prairie in St. Louis County. There's a bicycle path that runs past the shelter and alongside a two-lane road.
     The second image, Midwest Cliché #4/Ride with Traffic (posted 9/6/2009), was shot about 100 yards from the shelter and interestingly enough, the third photo, Midwest Cliché #3/Roadside Attraction (posted 8/30/1999), can be found about 50 yards in the opposite direction.
     I like the location and I like finding inspiration each time I go back.

Jaws is available as a limited edition print through the Bruno David Gallery.

    sternly warning riders to comply or
    die. Sign can only be read by riding
    against traffic
