Weekly Photo Challenge – Depth 2
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Depth.”
I am terribly drawn to the bleak, the solitary and the unwritten narrative. Be it a raging sea, a solitary person or a lonesome tree against a stark white sky. I have taken enough photographs to know this.
On a some level there is just something that catches me about those scenes emotionally. I am particularly drawn to shooting people walking away into an empty place, a place holds no clues as to the journey ahead and I want to look at that photograph and wonder what the beginning and ending of that story is.
I have a friend who analyses me about this. He thinks there is something on a deeper level that makes me shoot scenes like this but I don’t think so. I have always been drawn to photography that can potentially tell a story, so to me it stands to reason that there are times when I am naturally drawn to that within my own photography. As I keep telling him when he starts on, it really isn’t that deep man.
