Kokoro - Wandering Through a Photographic Life

Backstage Kokoro

A "behind-the-scenes" look at selected images in my Kokoro project —
Content, photographic notes, EXIF data, creative process, miscellaneous commentary, and original digital captures. And now with additional audio comments about selected images!

From Kokoro #116 - Tree Bones

I find it interesting how often some of our favorite photographs are ones that simply don't connect with a very broad audience. This image is one of those. I just love this broken tree and its dance-like gestures. I've printed this a number of times and shown it to a fair number of people — none of whom seem to connect with it at all. I've decided not to let such things bother me. We have to photograph from our heart, and recognize that this sometimes means we are the only audience who will appreciate one of our photographs.
