    great lighting on the girl. there is something very mysterious and moving about this photo.

  • Thanks again Ryan, yeah I feell the same way about it, kind of spooky and I haven’t figured out exactly why. It was a bright sunny day in Napa,Ca which doesn’t really lend itself for that feel The more I look at it the more I think it is her posture, static, staring and that blonde hair contrasted with “The Weight Room” ( not the wait room we mean business) which implies big, strong, macho as opposed to the “Little Girl” with the pretty blond hair. She kind of doesn’t belong there if that makes any sense.

    Your photojournalism comes out in all your photos.

  • Thanks Diane! Now that you point it out, I guess I have to agree, photojournalism is where photography started for me. As a kid I couldn’t wait for the next National Geographic or Life magazine to hit the corner store and the first time I used a camera was to photo the Queen of England’s first visit to Mexico for AP. Guess it is just the way I am trained to see and deeply imbedded. LOL Tony

    • Interesting image.
  • Thanks Bradley, it is one of my personal favorites. I was teaching a two week half day photography class to a group of ten year olds during a summer program at a private school in Napa. We were on our way for a tour of a local fire station when we passed this building and she stopped and stared at the sign over the door. She asked me what the sign meant and when I explained she said that is stupid, it’s a game right?

    An interesting and appealing image

  • Thank You Athex, here in the USA football is akin to religion and taken very seriously from an early age. It is a tough and macho world. Tony

    I never saw this sign at my school… but I understand it…

  • Thanks Mark! It took a second for it to register that she didn’t get it. It seemed obvious to me. :)) Tony
