Eye-Catching Color

Red Door, Asheville, NC  -  2016

When I saw this combinations of bright colors, I was reminded of some of the work of photographer Joel Meyerowitz. In the 1960s, Meyerowitz was one of the early advocates of the use of color at a time when only black and white photography was considered worthy of being called "art". His book, Cape Light, a 1979 collection of photographs made on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, has become a classic of color photography, and was very influential in color's acceptance by the art world. Is my photo "art"? I don't know, but I like the colors!
