Kiva – Here Comes the Sun
When you are hiking in the inner canyon @ the Grand Canyon — once the sun comes up —> it is gonna get hot in a hurry.
I decided with this pigeon to use the yellow of the envelope via a cutout to present the sun- letting the rest of the envelope’s yellow flood the composition just like the sun floods the environment down there. The legal stamp is of the Yosemite Valley in California but reminds me of being down in the canyon so was a great addition.
mailed by me to myself @ Phantom Ranch in 2008. It is REALLY exciting to hike for 2 days from the North Rim, come into from the dust and heat to the Canteen @ Phantom, rifle thru the River Mail Box and bingo — there is my pigeon : )) while you sip your ice cold lemonade.
