This might not be a popular photo with most of you, but I like it a ton. Maybe because I was there watching the sun come up in Miami from the back of a cruise boat. There is always something special about experiencing an event vs. seeing it in a photo. That may be a funny thing to read from a photographer, but its how I feel about the subject. Don’t get me wrong, I always try to capture the moment, but admittedly I fail more times then I succeed. It’s very hard to capture the feeling, emotion, and senses you experience in a photo. This photo is a great example. The photo can’t capture the warm breeze as it blew past our cabin balcony. The photo can’t capture how I felt as the sun came up. The buildings went from being in the shadows of the night, to reflecting a beautiful orange glow of the morning.
Anyway, there are usually a ton of reasons why I like some photos that might not seem wonderful at first glance. But they all have meaning for me and that is often why I share them with you.
