[livejournal.com profile] kira_j also asked for my fav photo/photographer and my favorite One Direction song.

Am completely unaware of One Direction songs, so no favorite there. Flip side is, I don't have a least favorite either! ;-)

Photography... I am bad with favorites. There isn't one particular image, or photographer that strikes me. There are some I don't care for... Annie Lebowitz does dip-fiddly for me. Also not a fan of Ansel Adams. Though, I recognize his talent. Simply prefer color photography. Especially in landscapes. Which are my favorite kind of photos, actually.

Any kind of landscape works for me. Rolling hills green with growth, mountains with hovering cloud cover, beaches dusted with foam. Saw a collection of images once from a birch grove. Same grove at different times of day and seasons. So cool to see the changes those made to the photography.

While I am a nature lover and easily drawn to those, urban 'scapes are equally awesome, when handled well. Enormous cities cluttered with buildings and people teeming in the streets, candy colored rows of houses with white trim reflecting the sun, street shots of people of every kind... all that stuff is fascinating to me.

'Urbex' style shots are also very cool. Images of life gone by, sometimes abandoned sometimes escaped from. The things people are willing to let fall into decay, so interesting. And how the elements creep in, marking the space, taking it back inch by inch. Single buildings, entire towns or facilities. And the lore they gather, which can almost be captured by a camera in the right hands.

Oddly enough, what I like to take pictures of is people, architecture and garden close-ups. Instagram perennials. Ah, well.
