Man playing traditional German horn

Just over a month ago, there was a small little festival outside of Woodstock Virginia. Called German Fest, a collaboration of two German family reunions.

The following photograph I shot is of a man in period German garb blowing a traditional wooden horn.  I truly enjoy not only the foreground of this photograph, but the background with the children running, and the man on the right texting.

I had the chance to stop by and see some of my good friends of mine, as well as their beautiful kids. One of their daughter’s Collette, aka Coco, enjoys showing her ballerina skills, as well as her contorsion ability. 

I was able to catch her in the moment, and play with this image in Photoshop. I think it gives a avant-garde sort of aesthetic.

While taking a walk at my nearby park, I stopped to look at two particular trees. As I looked above, they just struck me as they were reaching for each other. In addition, it was the way the light hit the trees that gave a positive/negative esthetic.
