Photo of the Week - and now for something completely different

February 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Over time, you develop a style all your own.  It's natural and expected.  You look at a scene an something catches you eye, and you make a phoograph of whatever it was that you saw.

Style comes in how you frame the image, the depth of field you select, what catches your eye in the frst place.

Still, every now and then you see or capture something atypical.  Maybe you were in a different mood, or something happened that prevented you from getting your nomal image.

Cherish these occasions!  They can lead to something special

The image below was taken in Provence, France.  I was on a photo trip, and we had gone to this small town to shoot water.  Except the weather was lousy and there weren't reflections available where I wanted them.  So, when I saw this shop window, I snapped a picture.  Just one.  Just so I could say I got a reflection shot while in the town.

Turns out, it is one of my favorite shots.  There's so much going on.  So many layers.  So many stories.  And not something I've ever been able to dupicate.

So, if you ever encounter circumstances where you can't shoot as you normally would, embrace the challenge.  You can get somethng special.
