Primal Look

I'm currently exhausted and ready to crash, so todays photo is a quick pick from one of the first outings with my camera. Its not the cleanest shot I've ever taken, but it has a lot of power. When I look into his eyes, I can tell his attention was just as keenly focused on me.

Fire in the Sky

I'm not a morning person, but this was worth the grumbles (and the near death experience of twisty mountain roads in the dark while drinking free starbucks). Cristina and I got up at 3 am and drove for two hours to catch the sunrise in the Sierra's. As the sun climbed over the peaks, the entire sky burned.

Choosing a photo for this week was difficult. The book I'm reading right now has me in a very melancholy bittersweet mood, and I want a picture that reflects that mood. But, since my first reaction to someone hurting isn't to pull out my camera, I don't take very many sad pictures.

When I look at this I get a sense of loss and longing. I see a woman missing someone from a hundred miles away, taking comfort from a puppy who doesn't understand.

What I find interesting about this photo is the different response it evokes in each person. Being unable to see their facial expressions means you have to read the body language and decide for yourself who these people are.

Is it two lovers coming together after a long absence? Or maybe a sad sweet goodbye of two old friends? Does the ring mean they're married? Does the watch say its time to go?

I like to stay positive in my outlook. For me, its two people being reunited.

What do you see?
