Makes No Sense
I like the image above. It doesn't make any sense. It has too many things going against it - the blurred back of the machinist, the odd dangly thing at the top, there's a pop bottle there and a shiny new looking helmet against what otherwise looks, well; shop worn. I kept telling myself it was grounds for the waste basket, but I didn't want to throw it away. I'm sure it's not a good photograph, and possibly no one else is going to see anything in it - but something made me take the picture despite all the things going against it and I show it to you to generate a discussion about liking images despite logic telling us the image shouldn't work.
