The soul behind the face...

I don't think I see things how other people see them. I like old things. I like things that other people think are junk...

Yesterday the Chorus guys installed fibre to our house. I wasn't particularly interested in getting it but Marc thought that while the install is happening for free we'd be silly not to get it. What I saw is that the guys moaned about having to do a 'proper' job (aka up the interior of the wall instead of a cable running up the face of the wall where you could see it) and that they stood all over my garden squashing baby plants about to flower and breaking rose buds off that were about to bloom - don't they realise that it takes all year to get the flowers to this point with lots of loving care?... 

During this time my Dad popped in with an old metal reel for Marc to put his air hose on in the garage but when Dad saw the Chorus guys he exclaimed, "Marc should ask them for a 'new' plastic one that they've finished with, that would be much better". Of course, I said "Na, na Dad, your old one will be heaps better. For starters it's metal and it's old, and it was yours". To me there's no comparison, but it does show how we all see things so differently from each other.

This is what I like about portrait photography... that I get to photograph the soul behind the face, the you I see. Just maybe, the you, you never knew existed... feelings and thoughts captured... 

Don't worry, we wont make this public
