my dad’s camera

Of all the images I have captured, this one may be my favorite for so many reasons.

On the surface this is an image of my dad’s camera, a relic of an age passed.  It is held by my son, his grandson.  These things make this very close to my heart.

But deeper.  I captured something in this image that has eluded me, it is an air, an artistic emotion that lives in light and texture.  Capturing these things in this moment has inspired me to seek the same in future projects.

To my own eye, I prefer the image in the muted colors but I have also edited it to a simple black and white.  Which speaks more to you?  I would love to know your opinion!
