Hauling Logs

Posted by Bruce (Tacoma, United States) on 23 March 2018 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

I always loved this statue in Enumclaw WA but have never been happy with the photos I captured. The detail of the oxen is in the shade and so I found it difficult to photo.

Since today's photo had a bland sky - I thought I would try a different style. Tomorrow I will show the other side if it.

Sculpture honors logging legacy in Enumclaw

By Mike Archbold

Power, strength and danger. Retired logger Michael Maras sees all these qualities in the larger-than-life bronze figures recently installed at the new Logging Legacy Memorial Park in downtown Enumclaw. A drover with his goad stick and a pair of oxen joined by a yoke are all bent forward, their backs and their shoulders straining atop a huge slab of sandstone.

I appreciate all the comments – I find them very encouraging. My primary photography is flowers and landscapes along with my grandkids.

Most of my photos are, “as they were taken.” I do work with lighting or darkening them in many cases (and sometimes I will sharpen them) but I try not to use too much “photo-shopping” If I do adjust them – I try to mention it.

My goal is to I try to keep my photography as photography and not turn it into art. While I do love the retouched photos, I personally think they become art and not photography – just my opinion.

There is so much power in this sculpture. The black and white and the sky in the background really dramatizes the sculpture.
