On a glorious late-October day, I was walking the neighborhood, testing my new polarizing filter.  These perfect, bright red tree berries against the deep blue sky, the colors made more vivid by the filter, called to me.  The combination of intense color, unusual angle, shallow depth of field and isolated subject matter made the image look otherworldly to me, hence the title of this photograph.

This drawing represents a step in the direction I’d like to take my graphite work.  I took a lighter hand with the graphite, and left white space to allow context, rather than rendered detail, to tell the story.
