In the same way that in my previous photo essay I focused on small details that I would’ve normally ignored. For this second part I decided to also go to a neighbourhood that I don’t usually visit, to try to find more of those hidden details of the city I live in. To that end, I chose Georgetown; a small rectangle of land isolated from the rest of Seattle by obstacles both natural and man made, that has maintained an aesthetic that feels more small town America than booming tech cultural melting pot.
In photography, as in life, it is easy to take ourselves too seriously. Once you go beyond being a simple snapshot photographer and move unto the realm of finer craftsmanship, the drive to learn more, to practice more, to try more complex ideas all the time is always there; but it can push us too far.
