Photo Index Memo 1

January 21, 2009

This beautiful photo tells a story of remembrance.  Viewers are attracted to the bright highway dividing lines and then follow the road as it trails off into the distance.  The road can be representative of a journey already traveled.  The way that Adams contrasts lighting in the background between the clouds and the dull, barren land, brings the background into the attention of the viewer as well.  The last thing that is particularly interesting in this photo is his decision to include a car far off in the distance in the left lane.
