I made these pictures not long ago in the middle of January. Just three months ago, when the world was very different.
We are back on Mount Bonnell, on the second day of my test of the Fujifilm GFX 50R. I made these candids before making my landscapes and creating this photograph I posted five days ago.
As I recall, it was a warm Texas winter’s day. People were out in force, enjoying the comfortable weather, the beautiful overlook, and the approaching sunset. A family of four used a large flat rock as a picnic table, enjoying a meal. Others shared wine. People congregated and savored each other’s company. Things that we all took for granted that we can’t do right now.
I went to Mount Bonnell on that day to make landscapes. Everything else, like these photos, was merely a quick test, thinking they didn’t have much value. Oh, how wrong I was. I can make those landscapes anytime. What I miss are the people. They are gone, at least for now.
