Evening chat, Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, Florence, Oregon, 2006

This group of people stopped to talk at the crest of a sand dune, giving me a perfectly backlighted wideangle shot. Once again, we have an image with a dual subject/context relationship. We can look at the strikingly abstract landscape itself as our subject, using the people for scale and context. Or we can view this image in human terms humans using nature as an arena for their pleasure and relaxation. In that case, the people become the subject, and the dunes the context. By abstracting both subject and context, I leave it up to the imaginations of my viewers to process this image as they will.
