My Favorite Works
One thing I want to do with my blog is share with the world (or at least that part of the world that looks at my blog) my favorite images, art or any other cool stuff that inspires me. So today since I am flying I thought it would be appropriate to talk about one of my favorite photographs called "En Route to New Orleans" by William Eggleston. I think the greatness in this image (as well as any other) is it creates a story and leaves the viewer wondering about the who what why and where or the image, as well as the spectacular composition and lighting (for which he was well known for). As I look at this image I always wonder did he know this woman and help her pose her hand, or did he just spontaneously take the picture when he saw it? I haven't done any research into this picture specifically because part of my enjoyment is the questions that it poses. Anyway, there you go I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
