CADILLAC RANCH, AMARILLO TEXAS
Cadillac ranch is a site I have visited several times since I started in photography. I think there are several ways it can be photographed and I ran through nearly all of them on this trip. This shot was my favorite of the bunch and I actually took it while I was walking away and leaving the field to go back to my car. I wanted a shot that A) included all ten Cadillacs, and B) dwarfed them in scale. After taking hundreds of shots that day, moving around the cars and painstakingly waiting for the shot to be free of people, I saw this scene as I was walking away and decided to include the people. This was the beginning of my thinking to include the tourists with photo-worthy scenic shots. Capturing the capturer, and on occasion, capturing the capturing of the capturer (taking of photo of someone else taking a photo) as in this photo to the far left.
