Scientist Susan Meyer for the NYT in a story about invasive grass species in the West. I love being a photographer because it forces me to go places I would never have any reason to go. In this case, it was skull valley Utah. Unless you are part of the military weapons testing stuff or a crazed redneck, there really wouldn’t be a reason to go to Skull Valley. It was covered in cheatgrass which is an invasive grass species that originally came from Asia. Now, it’s EVERYWHERE and it sticks to EVERYTHING. As I laid down to get a shot from a low angle the subject, Susan Meyer simply asked “are you sure you want to do that?”. It was too late and I spent the next 4 days finding cheat grass in random places.
