Silhouette of a well wisher at the wedding reception, San Diego, California. I don't shoot a lot of artsy photos. Mostly, I lean towards floral, scenery and documentary shots (example, candid moments at a wedding). However, every now and then a really beautiful shot comes by, something combining just the right lighting and reflections, unposed and yet elegant in its simplicity. This was one of those moments. To me, this picture speaks volumes about longing and loneliness; about elegance and formality; about quiet moments and contemplation. Whether this photo represents the situation in fact is, I would claim, irrelevant, as art is in the eye (lens?) of the beholder.
