One of my favorite types of photography is one where there is a theme. Recently Jeff Stover called me about some art for his gym, Chico Sports Club. It had been a few years since the last time, when I created some prints of local historic places, so I was really glad to hear from him. This time he wanted to add some art to the newly remodeled men’s locker room. His theme for this round of commissioned prints:
Around here, Butte County specifically, that’s not hard to find. Most orchards are very accessible and owners don’t mind their future harvest being photographed.
So, on a cool day in late April I went in search of the barn that I know he likes, almond orchards everywhere I look.
Springtime in Butte County.
And in fact I found several barns, a black cat watching me.
