Sara’s Trees

"Sara's Trees"


By Stephen Weiss, MD

Stephen Weiss, MD, is an Internist at the Petaluma Medical Offices. He also has a Doctor of Mental Health degree from the University of California, San Francisco with a specialty in Geriatric Mental Health. "Sara's Trees" was a brief moment captured on a drive along a rural Napa County road. Dr Weiss describes seeing the world as compositions, images as they would be framed through the camera. He likes asymmetry in the photographs that force the eye to move into the image. He is currently working on a project doing portraits of family farmers and landscapes in the Central Valley. "You can walk outside in Sonoma County with your eyes closed and get a good landscape, but I am finding that the Central Valley demands much more to get a well-composed photograph."
