Two Things Touching

Apples and all they symbolize... the garden & forbidden fruit, goodness, Mom's pie and the American way... sometimes it's not what you photograph, but how that makes the big difference, the difference between a mediocre and a good photo. It helps so much to know composition, but when you come up with an idea or a concept that works it is huge. I feel sometimes that my students would rather not think, that they find it safer, not easier, to just let their minds roll without stopping anywhere to see the idea or the concept that can work so well to express an attitude or feeling. I don't mean to generalize, for many of them are very good thinkers and try to stretch the concepts that are close to them, but sometimes they stare a great idea in the face and miss it.
Ce n'est rien.
