“You will never make a photograph that everyone likes, so make sure that you like every one of your photographs.” ~Oliver Gagliani
A few months ago, I posted some images I'd made of some abandoned train cars in Bartlett, NH. Soon after that, I received a note from a fellow photographer that said in part, "...You're going to have to sell me on those train shots." My response? It was immediate and direct: "No, I don't." I love the images, they are a departure from what I usually shoot and were a fun challenge. I enjoyed the process and am proud of my results. I have no expectations that everyone will love everything I shoot. I shoot for myself, for the joy that it brings to my life. If other enjoy my work, that's even better! If not, that's okay too, we all see the world in different ways.
In that spirit, here are a few more fun images from that shoot:
So, who are you shooting for? ;) Let me know your thoughts.
