Iconic cabin

Christopher RobinOur Town Arts

If you have followed my work for long, you will know that it is my personal challenge to photograph the same thing everyone else does – differently. Everything is being photographed in this digital phone camera crazy age so I need to do it my own way. Different light, composition, angle, or post processing it is my task to create something different.

Having said that, this week’s image is my version of Cades Cove’s Carter Shields Cabin (circa 1830). It is not much different than many images that I have seen of what may be the most photographed structure in the park.

With this image I failed at different but sometimes you take the iconic or cliché shot just so you will have it. No shame there, but one day I will shoot this cabin in a very different way. Until I figure that out, enjoy this and the beautiful fall that we are having.

Our studio will be open until 9 p.m. for the First Friday Art walk on November 4. Stop in to say hello if you get a chance.

Photographer Chris and painter Robin Rohwer each week share a painting or photograph that captured their interest in hopes that it will also capture yours. They have a small studio and gallery in the Phoenix Building at 418 South Gay Street where you can stop and see their work.
