What People Like
One of the coolest aspects about last night’s photography exhibit was to chat with everyone and hear what specific images they liked. I was surprised by people’s tastes, which of my images they were drawn to. There were a few images that a lot of people pointed out over and over again. (The one above got the most comments)
Something I hadn’t counted on or ever experienced before was how happy I was to see other people happy over my photographs. They were excited to take home the specific images they chose and give them a place in their own surroundings where they could look at them and admire them from time to time. In people’s personal spaces from bedrooms, to kitchens and living rooms, my photos would grace a new environment. THAT is very cool!
Many of my friends showed up to last night’s photo show to offer support and I was extremely grateful. I guess part of the experience for me in showing my photography, is sharing the creation, the creativity itself of art, to integrate and inspire that place within people where expression, perception and interpretation intersect in a very heart-felt way. I was inspired myself to see that come to life.
