This is one of my first digital photos, back when a camera had less pixels than my phone. I remember being absolutely obsessed with light, and how it changed everything, manipulated my eyes into focusing on things I otherwise wouldn’t notice.
It’s funny how, instinctively, our eyes are telling us what is the subject we want in our photo. It was what made us stop, made us have a second look and ultimately made us press the shutter. Sometimes that subject is made more obvious after, when editing. Or it may need a bit of help, to really make a photo.
And then, there’s photos like this, that I can’t explain how much I really like. I know what I was going for, the amazing Rodin sculpture in its setting at the Paris Rodin Museum. I loved the building, the works, the light. And then someone got in my shot, just. I took another one, after waiting for the person to move because it was the shot I thought I wanted, but I’ve always prefered this one. Does it work or is it one of those you don’t know where to look?
