North Carolina, August 2007

I was photographing in North Carolina in August 2007 during the third day of an improbably hot stretch. In the middle of a large field I set up my tripod, put my 4×5″ camera on top, and inserted a 150mm lens. The dark cloth went over my head and as I focused the image the sweat dripped mercilessly into my eyes, the salt stinging them, making it hard to see. I am cold adverse and heat has never caused me to not do something, but for the first time I decided, after releasing the shutter, to pack things up, find a bar, and grab a beer.

It was this that was in my mind when I wrote North Carolina, August 2007, the hottest day I can remember experiencing. The idea of pushing through and literally leaving it all on the field left me exhausted but happy.

North Carolina, August 2007 was written for two Horns, Trombone, Bass Trombone and Tuba.
