March is almost over, and I just realized that, for the most part, we have been spared the relentless, strong and blustery winds we usually get in March. I’m sure they will get here eventually.
This photo was taken during a soccer game last spring when the winds were howling. This little girl finally gave up trying to keep her hair out of her face. She stopped in the middle of the field and began shaking her head, letting the wind have its own way with her golden locks, just “going with the flow.”
I processed this photo in B&W to accentuate the contrast in her hair which helped draw my eyes to the helter-skelter movement of her hair. In the color version I kept getting distracted by the bright colors in the background, as well as the multiple hues of her blond hair and how it contrasted with the black jersey. Those distractions kept drawing my attention away from the whole point of the picture ; i.e. her “mop” of disheveled hair.
