This week’s photo challenge was difficult for me. It made me realise how much my photography has focused on scenes or things, rather than people, their lives and their emotions. There were a few photos I could have used for “Love” which were nice to look at, but they were very clichéd, and therefore also uncannily boring.
The photo I have chosen, while symbolising love, is lifeless and dull, not like love at all. However it also encompasses, with that very detachedness, my approach to photography in the past. It therefore serves as a reminder or lesson to me to be more open to people and “life”. And that is probably one of the best outcomes of love anyway.
