I recently read an article indicating that one shouldn’t worry about “telling a story” when taking photos. I find it hard not to do so. My whole world behind the lens is about telling the viewer what might be happening, what was happening, or what might happen tomorrow, the day after that, or never at all.

I want you to think about what photos tell you. Use your imagination.


Where have they gone? What did they do? Will the store ever open again? I don't know, but there's a story there.

I also spotted the top one, such a great building, illustrated it here: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bh83jQEDfV7/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
