a little change in perspective …

It’s interesting what one small change can do for an image and to a story. This was the first photo …


The image tells its own story – she’s busy eating, he’s holding her doll for her. She actually placed the doll in his arm just like that, then snuggled up next to him with her Cheerios and milk. But you didn’t know that, right?

Just for kicks, I moved in. There was no goal in mind, but I wanted to see what might come of a little less surrounding detail. Here was the result …


With one small change, it becomes a much different image. Why is he holding the doll? What’s he doing? What are his surroundings? You’re left to tell your own story here.

I think I’ll try this more in the future – just to see what other stories can be told … or left to the imagination.
