I’ve often wondered at the diversity, and often strangeness, of the photographs that are taken by people It is sometimes good to let the mind wander and indulge in thoughts and theorems about what prompts a photographer to photograph a particular subject, or to do so in a particular way, and then to further process it in a particular style.
What makes a photographer chose to render his image in monochrome rather than colour, what made them choose to use the “rule of thirds” or break them? What would make a person (of relative sanity) walk the streets of Georgetown to take up Street Photography, or spend months in the Rupununi areas of the interior?
As each photographer takes more photographs they tend to develop a style, a particular slant to their work, some are even known for creating Genres, Nikhil says I have a “style” although I find it hard to identify, and I can usually identify his photographs (except where he deviates from his norm)… so… where does this photo fit in? 🙂 I know it’s mine, would you have said it was?

One thought on “Is this mine?”
Well everyone develops a style after a while I guess. Both a good thing and a bad thing. You stop experimenting after you find what suits you, but you also get to put a bit more exploration into your own preferred techniques and subjects.
