Okay, here's another in my occasional ongoing series of "Photos I Took at the Art Institute of Chicago of Great Paintings." This is The Herring Net by Winslow Homer, a work I've always loved. Very atmospheric and rich in its colors which, not surprisingly, are much more vibrant in person. That said, while I know that Winslow Homer did the hard work here, it's much too easy to dismiss the fine craft that goes into finding the painting in the museum, patiently waiting until all stragglers leave the view, framing your camera lens properly, and actually taking the picture. And so, with that in mind, here is my collaboration with Winslow Homer.
