One of the discussion questions in the Helmer’s reading for this week was to compare the verbal description of Yellowstone with the images create by Thomas Moran or with more recent photographs. I thought I would apply this to one of my own photos. I spent this summer in the mountains of West Virginia, at a jewish camp teaching arts and crafts so I pretty much lived in the woods for 2 months this summer. I had a lot of time to analyze everything that I saw and fall in love with my surroundings. I am from the city so living in the woods, to me, was very peaceful at times. When I try to verbalize my experience to people that are curious, the first thing I always start out by saying is to picture yourself in a place where modern society does not exist. The only thing that surrounds you are the trees, the light the pokes in from the trees, and whatever is on the ground. So try to verbalize what you see in this image?
