I know that sometimes I feel like how this looks.
He’s determined. The weather is heavy and cold. He’s on his own and in his zone. He knows where he is going.
I know where I’m going. It’s forward. Beyond that I am not certain.
I also tend to quote a certain movie, The Blues Brothers, “We’re on a mission from God.” Not that I think God has spoken to me. But the movie does. The Blues Brothers only knew what they had to do, but they had no clue how to do it. They had the next step and the destination. The journey was somewhat a mystery. Well, the journey had a ton of craziness along the way. But the mission was serious. The next step was serious. Over the next few years, I’m sure I’ll look back and laugh. But I’ll remember how I felt while on the path.
I know that the other day I said how I have been searching out photographers. And indeed I have. But the path is mine.
That said, I think of two different photographers that have impacted my street Photography.
When Chicago snows, there is a certain dramatic feel with the city lights, the architecture and the people. I certainly feel like I had both photographers whisper in my ear in this one.
There you go. I just gave you two almost completely different sides of the same coin. There’s the lonely side and then there’s the side populated with companions. If I may get a little high minded here, to me “Full Perspective” means you’re going to get both sides from me a lot. Where some see only one emotion or story, I see two. To me it is a richer way of seeing the world. I hope to explain this way of seeing in a later post.
