There is one reason alone I took this picture. I could tell you it’s a minimalistic study on decay in the world. That is not true though. I could also say that this weekend has driven me to drink with the catchup of the imploded computer problem. Also not true though. The most I had to drink this weekend was a shot of Rumchata in my coffee. It could also be a statement on the ruin that alcohol can cause, you got it … not true either. I can’t even try and pull off that I took the picture as an easy quickie for the POD because the fact is that rather than get out of my car in the blistering cold I drove around until I had the perfect angle on it. As a result it was just not that easy or quick.
What I can say about it is that originally it was not going to be a POD picture. It got elevated to POD status because I simply had nothing better, in my mind. I can say it reminds me of someone who is important. I can also say that it makes me smile, just like that person does.
So I took it because it makes me happy. Does a picture really have to be more than that?
In the end this is one of a few POD’s that I took for myself and only myself with no thought or care about the quality, vision or impact other than it made me smile.
