Mamiya shooter Matt Theilen recently posted an entry on his blog regarding a print auction. Proceeds will go to the High Fives Foundation, which, according to their site, is “a Tahoe-based non-profit organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes who have suffered a life-altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community.” Bidding is set to end on December 15.
Matt captioned the image with the following information to assist bidders:
In the fall of 2008 I was traveling along highway 1 near Point Arena, California and the fog was building and rolling in from the ocean. I stopped along the road when I saw this fence and row of cypress trees descending off into the mist. I set up my Mamiya 7 with Tmax 400 and made several exposures as the fog rolled through.
Shot in the fall, the beautiful photo reminds us of that Bob Dylan lyric,”…I waited for you on the running boards near the cypress tress while the springtime turned slowly into autumn.”
Enjoy, and thanks to Matt for contributing his art for a good cause.
