I’ve been in love with this pose, of late.
I’m bothered when I notice myself copying a shot I’ve done previously, but not in this case. There is an attractiveness to this pose.
It’s a lie, of course. The deep dark secret is it’s all a reconstruction of what I see in my head (which most likely is something I’ve already seen in the world and am seeking to replicate), it’s all me trying to convey not necessarily what is, but rather what once was.
I can only assume the first time I saw somebody doing this I was so taken with the image in front of me I seek to capture it again and again.
