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.
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.
