JONATHAN THOMPSON: INSPIRATION: MARCH
Jonathon Thompson has posted a series of eclectic shots that he took in March. There is great diversity in this project, most of the shots seem to reflect parts of his life though, which give the piece a nice personal feel. My two favourites are night shots that make great use of foreground on a city lights background. Images of the city at night are so common, in fact I think images of light at night are common. People seem to have this amazing attraction to things that are lit up. Whether it's a Christmas tree, city at night, fireworks or a laser light show, we are attracted to light like it has a divine connection – maybe it does. I like how Jonathon has used the city scape in a lesser degree to typical night photography. In particular I love the way we must peer through the wire fence in the second shot. Nice take on a popular cliche.
