It started simply enough. I saw tall grass gone to seed on my street. Backlit no less. I was rapt, I savored it, knowing full well I would use it somehow. In the heart of San Jose, I’d found a rural scene, a stone’s throw from Walgreens, Dunn Edwards, and Yuki Sushi. My lovely neighbors accommodate my whims. Can I borrow your daughters, I asked. Adding: wearing something that suggests farm or prairie life. You bet, the parents said. The girls pranced out of the house and frolicked in the grass, not one, not two, but all three of them, dad included, an unexpected treat. In less than five minutes, we had a perfectly unscripted family photography micro session.
