"Ready To Rock"
Photograph on Metal by Alex DiFrancesco
Artist Statement: This photograph was taken in Walterboro. I was being juried for the South Carolina Artisans Center and I stepped into the back yard and there was an old building with this amazing rocking chair. Since I love architecture, I couldn't resist the chance to photograph such a historic building. It is one of my favorite photographs.
