It’s not Easy Capturing History

I am realizing that I am beginning to define my niche in photography. Nature, including wildlife and flowers, and historical scenes and artifacts. Nature basically presents itself, and as a photographer, I try to photograph it with my unique signature. Well, sometimes, not so unique.

History though is something different to me. I feel a need to tell a larger story with my photos. With this photo on the right, I got a little creative, but I did not really tell the reader anything about the subject.



With the photo below of the Supreme Court I think I succeeded in giving the photo a larger meaning. It was taken after the work day, early evening, with one lone security guard and presented to you, the viewer, in black and white. Now I believe this is a photo that can be discussed with many interpretations. What do you think?

The following photos don’t give us a hint of how they fit into history, but we get the idea that each place is old. We may not even figure out what Water Wheel is without a caption.

They each tell a story, and we can interpret each and choose to find out more about the scenes or let our imaginations run wild.  To me, they are compelling which is why I have included them.

Let me know what you think?

And as always, thank you for supporting my work!
