Irresistible

La Jolla

Irresistable has multiple meanings with respect to this photograph. The title references the feeling I get from this image, a feeling of being drawn in, compelled to look closer and to advance toward the open "door" at the end of the long passage. The title also refers to the feeling of being drawn to this location after seeing similar pier photos and wanting to find the perfect location to realize the previsualized image I wanted to create. One of the ways our brains have evolved is to have a high regard for symmetry. Studies of human perceptions and judgments of physical beauty have discovered we rate people as more or less physically attractive as a function of the symmetry of their faces and bodies. We find symmetry irresistable. I was drawn to this location during the Covid panic in January 2020. I set out solo on the 33-hour round trip drive from Wondervu to La Jolla plus with other planned side trips to Valley of Fire, my fine art printer, and Death Valley. I suffered a mini-disaster on my first attempt to make this photograph when a rogue wave took my film holder bag and flooded two of my double-sided 8x10 holders with sand and seawater. I made three more trips to this location over the next two days and finally devised a method where nothing touched the sand except my feet and my tripod legs. Live and learn! One morning the fog was so dense I could not see the end of the pier. Another visit, everything was gray--water, clouds, concrete; no color at all. But on this evening, a pale winter sun broke through the fog and clouds just enough to provide a pastel palette of color for the water and sky, a dreamy, surreal background for this intriguing symmetrical abstract.
