Most of the photography I do is very personal and maybe even selfish. I rarely think, “What will they say about this one?” when I push the shutter button. When I frame something, I am more often studying the object being photographed than I am recording it for posterity.
Thus, the details that I often capture, such as the back of my daughter-in-law’s wedding dress, are nothing more than . . . details. Later, when I am sifting through my photo collection, some of the details jump out at me. And so I present today’s Picture of the Day.
What I like about this picture isn’t my doing – I like the symmetry of each button and loop and their symmetrical relationship to each other. I also like the curves and lines that adorn this dress. Finally, I like the warm, soft light that plays on this subject.
The light wasn’t my doing either. I just found it. And often that’s what photographers do best.
