I keep being drawn to this one photo
It feels like it’s nearly brilliant
The woman’s face looking straight at the camera
But a bit of her face is obscured by someone else’s nut
and I can’t work out if it’s any good or not
It feels like it’s completely flawed
but every time I see it, it draws me in
The more I look at it the more I see
Perhaps the flaw makes it seem more real and not staged
Photography is the perfect medium for overthinking
What if she’s my dentist and is wondering why I haven’t booked my 6-month check-up yet?
She looks like a dentist
I thought I would add a little context so you know what the hell is going on.
I work as a professional photographer and this was at a Stereophonics concert where I was an official, accredited photographer. Check out my Instagram to see more band photos.
This photo was of the crowd at the Stereophonics gig and usually, only people who are close up look into the camera and it was odd that this one person in the middle of the crowd was staring straight into the lens.
