Description The Cemetery ElmI lived at a place called Malloryville on the east bank of Fall Creek from March 1986 through November 2011 when my wife, Pam, and I moved to Ithaca and my son, Sean, took over the Malloryville home.During those twenty-five seasons, on the road to Ithaca I noticed a large graceful tree with a full spheroid crown and limbs like waving arms.It grows from a modest prominence on the west bank of Fall Creek where the stream meandered across a plain. Nearby is a split rail fence around a scattering of headstones and pines named the R.D. Simons Farm Cemetery. You can stand on the spot and hear the flow of Fall Creek.
Michael Stephen Wills, Ithaca, New York Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement 50% of my profits on selected photographs are donated to the Fight Against Cancer. Selected prints are available throughout my galleries and identified in the print description.
My photographic style centers on the use of natural light to visualize emotion and evoke memory. The evolution of my style began early in the year 2002, with an imperative to capture personal and fleeting memories.
My son and I traveled to New York City, to view the first Saint Patrick's Day parade after September 11, 2001. My work from that parade was so successful and satisfying (see "New York Fire Department, Saint Patrick's Day 2002") I just never stopped.
In the years since, I have discovered creation techniques similar to an artist painting on canvas. For example: view my Fine Art print "Cochise Dawn". It is from a 64 megapixel image. This means the closer you gaze, the more detail and surprises are revealed.
