Expressionism and Abstraction April 2020

Chris Wright Photo Trips

Heading Outside Through the Rectangles. Perhaps a reflection of my feeling of late, on the desire to be outside in the nice spring weather. Crown 725.

While I didn’t have long to photograph there (Saturday), I was able to obtain some good photos and videos of Scott Creek and …
