The reason why I chose some of these images, or maybe the reason why some of the images chose me was because I think I feel a lot of different things when I see them. I feel like each one corresponds to me in some way. The first one is just kind of an old style looking photo with a blurred character in it, sitting outside on a sunny day, writing down her thoughts much like I am right now in my Houston apartment with crazy wigged out hair (I haven't cut my hair in a long time, so it's pretty long and curly, which I haven't done in a long time...). The second and third image are things we all enjoy, well not everyone likes coffee, but a lot of people do. As far as the second image - it's that feeling of waking up in the morning, the sheets / comforter are all over the place, you wake up feel refreshed and not a care in the world, and it's because there's a smiling face two inches away from yours and you wouldn't rather be anywhere else in the world. I know this is something we've all felt. So then after that you guys get up and make some coffee and hang out. So that's how the coffee fits in, and plus I just really like it. The next two images are pretty cool too... the one of the girl on the crowded train is super cool. It reminds me of trying to get back to Brooklyn during rush hour times on the subway. It would get so crowded with people all the time, everyone just packed like sardines in these subway cars. This photo shows an innocent looking girl, somehow caught looking across the train, and caught by the camera, looking out of place, or maybe she's not out of place and completely comfortable. Either way it's pretty cool how she's framed in this crazy frantic subway car while all these people are hustling and bustling around her and for one second in time this person was able to catch her in the midst of madness. The other two images show two people with cameras. The one is a guy with a Rolleflex (a medium format camera that is pretty unique in how you view the image when taking it, and produces a 2x2 inch negative, which is unique because it's a square and not the normal horizontal or vertical format, which totally changes the way you think about framing and taking a photograph) and the other is a girl playfully taking a photo in the mirror of what is probably her room. I just like this one because it's playful, she looks super cute, and seems like a girl I would want to hang out with.
The last image is something that I kind of wish I had in my life. Or... some instance of it.. or ... something. It just reminds me of a bunch of friends waking up on a nice Saturday morning with fresh ingredients making breakfast for each other, having fun, not a care in the world, just there making breakfast and making plans for the day. Nothing beats making a good healthy breakfast with those that you want to be with. It seems like an ideal situation. In a perfect world.
