This photograph belongs to Andee Carlsson.
When I was going through Andee's blog last night and this morning, looking for a photograph that would be emblematic of her work, I chose the perico because the color, framing, and animation summed up Andee's work.
But that choice lacked one element. Andee loved photographing her friends and neighbors. The camera was a tool to share her world with the rest of us.
She posted a series of studies of a young boy playing with a bowling set. I have always liked the first photograph where the boy is sitting as straight as a pin -- almost being part of (and separate from) his game.
Because Andee was all about relationships. Here is a second picture.
