On a cold blue winter’s day, the cover shot shows the edge of an enclosed field somewhere on Vancouver Island where abandoned cars were covered in frost when I visited with several friends. The first group of photos focusses on the cold that created ice patterns in the puddles. They set the scene for the second group in which I look at the cold metal sometimes covered in frost. The plants in the field die only for the season; thus they can endure longer than the metal remnants on which their shadows rest. The frost brings out much beauty in this slow transition from humanly created machine to metallic dust.
