The simple act of looking at something can be amazingly complex. As photographers we look all the time but often we see something entirely different from those who view are work. This photograph started out in color. The column was red and the boys shirts were different colors. I felt that version took away from the fixed gazes of the two subjects, but the juxtaposition of the tones and hues were interesting. Though I chose to eliminate the color, I’m sure that others would have preferred it.
Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist. View all posts by JohnAmes
