If you couldn’t guess from this post’s title, yes, I like the Velvet Underground (and Nico). Here is a recent image from my personal work that I would like to share. I decided to take a mini-diversion from my mainly wedding/portrait posts to put this up. Although, I have to mention, and I could be mistaken, but I think this was actually the first song my sister and brother-in-law danced to at their wedding!
For whatever variety of reasons, we become attached to things, places, people. As I’m sure you can imagine is an easy feat for me, I become attached to images. This photo filtered through my mind quite quickly into a place that I hold close. Why? Its mere existence is an affirmation of how much I love what I do, it is an affirmation of all the hours I have spent and those still ahead, looking, finding, making. I had just put down my gear after 9 hours of shooting at a wedding and I saw this beautiful mix of light, this old wallpaper, this softly glowing mirror– I had to take its picture! I smiled knowing that I had just finished a long, full day of “seeing” and yet, there was still room and excitement for more. * I like this photo and I like what I see upon looking into it even more. *
