2012, Day 126 - Hollow

Photography is like any art, it is meant to evoke a reaction and encourage you to feel something.  This isn't my best photo technically, I would have like a different point of focus and a greater depth of field but despite these shortcomings I still like it.  I like the backlighting, the background color and how its cool tone contrasts with the warm tones of the snail shell.  There is a feeling of emptiness, of an opportunity missed, and it makes me a little sad.  While there is a negative connotation to sadness I like how it makes one reflective.  So, emotionally, this photo really works.

  1. Wow! I couldn't even tell what it was at first. I thought it was a back lit pumpkin or something. Great job!
