Message in a Carversville field


The photographer’s Sunday began with cutting 120-foot long letters in the field behind his Carversville house. He wanted pilots to see the Black Lives Matter letters from the sky. He has a large stand of bamboo on his proerty, so he cut a piece about 30 feet high to make a pole. He duct-taped his phone to the top of the pole, turned on the video and held the pole high over the field. “Afterwards I just took a screen capture from the video,” he said. “Sounds like a lot of work but it made a cool Instagram post.”
