Statues

Taking photos of statues is probably one of the most obvious choices anyone with a camera can make. It has been a common element for me while I walk through my hometown with Zoe, and I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, not at all. But I realize it’s a crutch – it’s easy to point my camera at a piece of stone and take a photograph. It’s not going to move, it’s not going to get annoyed, it speaks for itself as a landmark of the city, and it can be surrounded, or even adorned, with quite interesting things.

Although I’ll probably take more photos of statues in the future, I’m trying to get out of my comfort zone, away from the obvious choices. I plan to do more than just let my subject speak for itself, and make my photograph do the talking. Putting these photos in this post is kind of my way of saying: “There. These are the last easy photos I take. The next ones will have something meaningful to say”.
