The Ones That Meant Something

I never thought about picking favorites from my own work until this challenge. I put much thought into this and in the end I couldn’t pick because I don’t think my photos are good enough or at least not as good as I wanted them to be. I do want to share a few that meant something by one way or another.

Isolation

Taken: 08/11/2016

I was alone at the top of a mountain listening to a song titled “Splendid Isolation”. I thought this photo embodied my feelings at the time.

I was on my way back from a disappointing soccer match shoot then I saw Miki (one of the neighborhood cats) just sitting there so majestically. I approached and he still didn’t budge which I didn’t expect but I was glad because I was able to take this photo and feel a lot better for the rest of the day.

I like the contrast in this photo. I think my decision to turn it to black and white was the right one. Another good decision was that I didn’t shoot his face because I wanted the photo to be a kind of a symbol for hardworking people not a portrait of one person.

I just love the light in this one. and all those lines on the floor, the shadows and the doors. it’s not a particularly beautiful photo but that’s exactly why I wonder what is it that attracted me to this photo and made me build a series around it.

If I were to truly pick a favorite, this series would be it. Check the original post for the rest of the photos and more info.

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge 24/07/2017

I’m so glad I found this challenge! (Thank you, Cee!) I have tons of photos that don’t belong and sometimes I end up doing something good with them in processing but still can’t categorize which makes me hesitant about posting them. Well, now I can under the umbrella of Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge! Banzai!!

So let me get on with it!

A few months ago, we were painting our holiday house by the beach. Of course, since shooting everyday and especially the out-of-the-daily-norm events is my second nature, I took a lot of photos of the activity and everything else no matter how insignificant. Later at post-processing, I make a small collection of them, recreating the whole experience only by photos. ultimately, within the collection, the photo below would make sense but alone, it doesn’t really belong and it’s meaningless.

Here’s another one from the streets of my hometown. I guess, it’ just… lines?! ><
