Least liked

Last week I posted this picture on my instagram simply because it’s one of the pictures coming out of my camera I have really liked in a very long time. Not many people agreed with me (as I had expected). Is it too dirty? Or is it something people can’t relate to? The more relatable a picture is – the more likes, I’ve noticed. I’m not saying likes are the most important thing on the planet, but for those of us with a one-person-business, they (unfortunately) play an important role in surviving on ones art/craft these days.

    I feel it oddly compelling too.

    A had a philosophical moment reading your question.

    I feel, that since we ‘modern people’ live in a consumer-driven world, I would like to suggest that our perception of the used, old and derelict has changed. Personally, I love used, old and derelict and anything new and standard is, well, just kind of boring. Just looking around the area I live in, suburban, lots of really interesting old houses and villas next to drab new posh buildings shows to me, how much things are changing and are somehow ‘flat’. These days it is all grey, anthracite, white, SUVs, show-offish. So I think, that because we are all so used to seeing ‘new’ and shiny around us, true human creativity, that imperfection, a certain playfulness and uniqueness is getting lost a bit along the way. I adore this photograph! Or rather, what it is that has been depicted. Chapeau!

    I also love this. I have similar taste as you do, so I really enjoy your photography. And I am not on insta. That platform is too full of boring to hold my interest.
    Perhaps your audience there is not sophisticated enough for your talents? 😉 I wish there were more options to connect online outside of that one. I am so happy Ive found this blog.
