Photography is the combination of the photographer’s eye, and light falling on a light sensitive surface or digital equivalent of film. And from this alchemy of human skill, experience, perceptions, impressions and interactions with technology evolves visual storytelling – often evoking a feeling, which in turn stirs our senses and conjures up memories. What are your feelings and what comes to mind when you see this image?
