Ah, even the boredom of sitting around waiting in a doctor’s office can turn into a photo op. Take this shot; just furniture in a waiting room. But convert it to black and white, darken it up a little bit and imagine you’re waiting in a hotel lobby back in the 30’s for the lady in red to come walking through a revolving door.

I’ll shoot anything that catches my eye, but I love it when somebody says “I never looked at it that way before” or even just a little “ooooh”. If I can make you stop and say “hmm”, that’s the best. I normally use minimal processing; a little bump in color and/or contrast, maybe a little cropping. But sometimes I just can’t resist the urge to play with an image.
