Continuing my series of The 2010 Deck of photos, this, the twenty-first week of the year, this week’s photograph is “Another day…”
It is telling, that in a week of taking very few photographs (outside of a session at a dance) that the one I considered the best was one that reflects on a growing part of our society. So many homeless and destitute, and so many in need of help. Many times, it’s scenes like this that draw our attention, even though most of us turn a blind eye to it and pretend that it doesn’t exist.
so, until another day…
I have come to realize that the photographs I take are an expression of my life and the events, people, places and things that affect and have an effect on me. Few things can effect changes in a person as drastically as the death of someone close. In times like this I realize that while I like taking photographs I can never seem to to capture the emotions of a scene as many of the professionals can. I can’t explain it, but I “had” to take photographs at my Grandmother’s funeral, it wasn’t something I wanted to do, or even preferred to do, I rationalized it as a job that would help keep me occupied, but it was more than that.
To my Grandmother, may she rest in peace.
I was inspired by my friend Tricia, whose WordPress blog I follow.
I think that a blog is probably a nice idea to assist my website where I put some of my photography.
Welcme and I do look forward to your comments on my future posts.
