The Story Behind Each Photo
I don't think I'm unique in this regard: when I look at my photos, I almost always recall the story behind the photo.
I can visualize where I was, where I was standing, what the weather was like, what I was trying to achieve, and what I had to do to get the shot.
I like that about photography. Each picture is not only a visual image, but also triggers memories of the moment. You might say that each image is not just a photographic image, but a virtual image in the mind of the events behind the image.
Take this image for example. Nothing fancy, but I did think it was a useful stock image of a office building.
I immediately remember that I was on my way to DFW airport in Dallas when I saw the building. I had seen it before from the highway. But this time I was a bit early for my flight and decided to get off the freeway and have a closer look.
It was warm, but not a scorcher. But it was windy. After making these shots I went elsewhere I tried to get some images of hundreds of small sunflowers growing in a vacant field. No luck - too windy.
I've said all that to say that I've started a personal blog at www.wattsjr.com where I'll posting some of my work along with the story behind it.
Hope you'll drop by occasionally.
