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.
My day is never complete without coffee.

Second entry for this week’s WPC, Lines.
This first photo is a re-post but I really like it and it fits the theme.
Now these ones are new.
Not the best example of prolific I’m afraid.
ok, it’s a hint of a smile but it’s more than enough for the people who know him to smile too.
It feels like I’ve been your tour guide since the moment I turned this blog to a photography blog. 90% of the photos I share are snapshots of my hometown. Not to mention, the blog’s name contains a part of my hometown.
If I’m to take the challenge seriously and sctrictly then the photos would be like postcards and touristism brochures and I just don’t know how to do that. My photos are almost always stylized.
My first attempt (and the only, so far) at a photography series was a personal vision of my hometown (Ingrained in the Night), quite biased and personal. I’ll just share some of those photos again here and hopefully you enjoy them.
and these are some of the people of my hometown.
