We Like What We Like...

David J. Carol


Here's an example of three photos taken over 20 years in different parts of the world. What do they all have in common? Me...Sounds obvious, but what I'm getting at is that they all have my "vision" in common. I'm not sure I like the word "vision", kinda sounds pretentious, but I don't know what else to call it. I like to photograph certain things. I see them over and over again when traveling. I find it comforting to photograph them, these things I like. I can't tell you why either. I have a file where I save these things I call "Boxes". There are dozens and dozens of them from all over the world. It's not just me, many other photographers also do this. Do you have something you see repeated in your photos? If not, take a look...There just might be a pattern you never noticed. I'm not sure if its a good thing or a bad thing...But, I kinda like it.
