I documented Mallard Point which never used to be Mallard Point. It use to be nothing and be a railroad track that connected Fall River and Somerset at the time. This really helped out with how people lived and trading goods like cloth or even pottery. This place is very interesting due to how much it has changed. You can actually see the other side of the railroad that was broken down and demolished in 1965 due to cars being more of a demand and it becoming a hazard. Actually the one thing I never knew about Mallard Point was that it was actually a railroad. I never took into perspective the railroad that was across from the point on the Fall River side of the Taunton River. I told a story of how people actually approach the Point now. It is like a regular visit how people come through the entrance always looking around at the trees come to the end of the point and end up just exploring around the beach of Mallard Point on each side. When photographing the point I established all the key aspects of Mallard Point. The fire hydrant, trees, and railing at the end were the biggest focus with the side beaches being an addition onto the "adventure". Photo number 2 was a great photo compositionally. I took this photo from a low angle so I could produce the sense that the path was a lot longer than it actually was. I also focused on the gravel in the foreground so the background is blurry and creates more of a mystery of what does the path lead to. Another photo that is great compositionally was number 6. This photo shows both the darkness and light that is the point. The water is perfectly reflecting the beautiful sun which entails the light at the point. While the rocks on the left are purposefully dark to show that even though the Point is very beautiful the history was dark because a railroad us to consume the Mallard Point. With my photos I played with the levels and layers to non-destructively change the colors just a little to express more dark emotion.
