    Flash of her Trombone

    I rather like Clinton Square. Of all the places I've seen in Syracuse, it's got the most of what I like — fountains, statues, and the fact that it's a large open space in the middle of the city. I've never seen the jazz festival there, but when I read, “Jazz in Clinton Square,” I thought of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. I was very nearly a history major, so things like Civil War statues have always been of interest to me. I figured if I made the statue into a jazz group, it would fit the theme.

    This was one of the first times I've worked completely digitally—the image was done almost entirely in Photoshop, and I think it's successful in that regard. I think it's a very dynamic image.
