• Liberal use of post-processing reveals to me a darker side to a tranquil scene at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center. It reminds me of a project that I worked on that required research into a specific environmental flavor, with Devil May Cry and Vampire Hunter D playing prominent roles. I look at it now and it appeals to an affinity I have for the post-apocalyptic motif – of solitude, unknown, decay – further enforcing the idea of ashes to ashes…dust to dust.
