The Solution |

Conducted a local photoshoot of Alum Rock Park, founded in 1872. It was the first municipal park in the state of California. Located in a valley in the Diablo Range foothills on the east side of San Jose, the 720 acre park offers 13 miles of trails. The subject matter of this shot is the child swings of the playground area located in the mid-canyon area. This area is frequented by deer and mountain lions. The scene was shot both staged with swings in motion as well as stationary. This one is most interesting as it adds to the urban legend stories of a colony of albinos that inhabit the area.
