For this week, we had to make an album on Flickr of the works we would consider “the best”. Currently, though, that album is filled with…mostly amateur pictures, which have been edited in Instagram.
Still, I believe these photos accurately represent the kind of…basic aesthetic I’m attracted to when taking pictures. I love pictures that are either faded or highly contrasted, with slightly unsaturated colors, or colors that are almost too vibrant. I also have a thing for taking pictures of buildings and scenery. I’m more of a “still-life” than a “capture the moment” kind of person.
Along with this, all of these photos represent a part of me. My teddy bear, the beauty of the courtyard outside my apartment, the library, my favorite pastimes, and my backyard at home. They’re all little bits of myself that I find around my life that make up who I am. It could also be seen as the places I travel to (from home to university to fun stores around town).
