I often talk about how I'm torn between light and dark. I love deep, earthy tones found in caves, streams, forests, and mountains. But lately I've been called to color. Or, maybe it would be more accurate to say that I've become addicted to color. Bright, warm, candy colors. I can't get enough. I wish that every building in the world was a different color. But maybe then it wouldn't be as special. For this shoot, I wanted to shoot somewhere I hadn't shot before. Somewhere that may only be beautiful in the eyes of a photographer. Well, if you've ever been to Treasure Island in San Francisco, you may know what I'm talking about. Originally built for the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition (yes, it's an artificial island), Treasure Island has seen better days. I'm actually quite shocked it hasn't been developed. It's stuck in a 1960s-70s era of former schools, military buildings, and storage containers. Ugly to most people, but I saw so much structural and colorful potential.
I never thought I'd love storage containers as much as I did on this shoot. Of course, I had an amazing team that helped make this happen!
