The Ever Crying Eye

This photo was taken back in 2004 when I was living on my own in Houston, TX. If you’re looking at it wondering, “What the heck is it?” It’s a U shaped piece of waterfall architecture in Houston’s well known Galleria Area. The waterfall is surrounded by 4 brick archways. I just framed the shot in such a way where the top half of one of the archways eclipses the top ends of the U, forming a perfect eye shape. With the water streaming down it makes for a simple but powerful shot. To me, Black and White photographs are all about contrast. How well the blacks, grays, and whites go together to create an even toned but mood rich photograph.

This picture reminds me so much of my good friend Corey who visited me in Houston and was with me during this shot! I’m sure she was sick of me taking picture after picture. This has been sitting in my photo library for over four years now and I finally used it!

  2. I’m so behind, but I totally voted for this one. Even though the pic of Kim is so adorable. She looks so young!
