Salty Bits

This was part of a whole set of shots I took with Kristina out in Alviso. There were these mudflats that had a thin crust of crystalline salt. Unfortunately it really was just a thin crust, under which was that greasy, fetid, black mud you get in tidal mud flats.


We were shooting around sunset and it was starting to get pretty chilly. Setting the white balance for tungsten lighting gave everything that icy hue.


She was a real sport, between the salt crystals which burned a little, the icky black muck, and the chilly wind. The things we do for art...
