Artist's description:

There’s often this idea that simple images are something anybody could do but the fact remains that “Anybody” don’t do, and that I feel is the difference between those who create and those who don’t.

Most people wouldn’t have even seen this image too busy looking forward, naturally, or more likely looking at their smart phones, unfortunately, and so the beauty of something so simple passes them by.

I’m inclined to believe that the twigs were brought together to form the letter “A” by a natural phenomenon rather than some kids or even a clever dog arranging them, clever as dogs are.

The beautiful light drifting across the pathway, highlighting the stone texture. The shape of the shadows complimenting the delicate nature of the twigs and how fine is the right side of the “A” as it stretches out its fragile arm.

I came back down this path some 30 minutes later and the image was gone, only here for a fleeting moment and for me, there’s something very beautiful in capturing a moment in time.

As a rule I print my pictures on A3 Matte Archival Art Paper but occasionally I use a semi gloss paper, this is because, I believe that the image will benefit. I reserve the right to make that decision on your behalf, unless of course you request otherwise.

If you have a preference of paper type, then if you contact me direct, this can be discussed.

The image size will be approximately 10x8, or what I consider sits aesthetically correct within an A3 paper format.

Should you be interested in purchasing one of my pictures, it’s worth noting, that print colour may vary slightly depending on what system you are viewing the image.
