Now Open For Business – Pink Perspective II
In an earlier post, I cropped this photo closely for a study of the green window, pastel colors, and the attached front porch. I thought it made an interesting photo of contrasts.
This time the photo works as a writing prompt with only minor cropping. For me, it opens an imagination bank and makes me want to tell a story. Why is this building “now open” and what is it open for? Do the two men have a part in the story? Why is this building in the center of Nassau’s Main Street, sharing territory with jewelry stores, high-end imports malls and tourist, duty-free liquor stores?
See, it’s definitely a story photo. I have about 5 photos now, both mine and other photographers – from whom I have written permission to use their photos. The photographs are all stored on my private, story-seed blog. I am writing, using the first one and I may post the photo/story combo when it is finished. If nothing else, I think it’s an interesting challenge.
