The Photo

Posted by

I really love this photo. Taken totally out of context, on it's own, I think it is one of my best.

I think a really good photo should not need any explanation and this is one that I think stands on it's own, but it does have an interesting story behind it, so even though I almost feel like posting this with no description, I will tell it's story.

This was taken during an adventure I went on called the MINIs Great Lakes Crossing. (for more information about this even and photos see here)

This is taken on the top deck for a ferry transporting a load of MINI Coopers across Lake Michigan, from MI to WI. What you don't see is the fact it is so windy I am having to brace myself against the railing not to be blown over. The wind was extremely invigorating. The photographer is a professional photographer, and now a friend, I met during this event. I think he wanted me to put down my camera so he could get a shot of me, but I was having too much fun shooting him. I have a "thing" about photographing photographers. In the background you see that we are approaching Milwaukee.

But the real story of this photo is not really important, it tells it's own different story to each individual who views it. It also speaks reminiscent of a certain Edvard Munch painting.
