The public is invited to vote and specifically asked to vote for Jim’s image, Blue and Gold. Because they are in alphabetical order, it is the last entry listed.
Blue and Gold was taken while Jim was on a mission trip to India. Through all of the chaos of the city of Delhi; with the crowds, sounds and smells, Jim immediately noticed in the distance a man on his boat, by himself, and was able to find the right angle of light and position to create this beautiful image.
“Some of the most beautiful things come when you are not looking for them and some times in ways you would not expect,” Jim shared about the image selected as a finalist for the High Art project.
Jim is a Master, Craftsman photographer with a gallery located in the Arts and Design District of Carmel, Indiana. With over 30 years of experience, Jim has traveled throughout the United States, India, Kenya and Haiti to capture his unique scenic and nature images.
