One of my images was chosen this year for the cover of the 2011 Spoleto Festival USA Ticket Brochure. Charleston's international arts festival is one of the world's largest, lasting 17 days, and offering a wide array of performances from artists and musicians from around the globe. Kudos to Stitch Design Co. for their excellent creative work designing the brochure.
Incidentally, Spoleto held a contest asking their employees where they thought this photo was taken. It may be hard to guess, as I made this image several years ago, and recent renovations to this single house have changed its appearance somewhat. This underlines how transient the moments are that we capture with our cameras. The moment is there, then gone forever. All that remains is what was recorded in that instant, which lingers only in our memories and our memory cards.
