He Saw. She Saw. Photographing Street Signs in Hollywood

1407_MFA_Hollywood_0019-Edit

Peter and I are often surprised when we do a joint edit of our images after a photography excursion.  We can be in the same place, at the same time, and yet interpret a subject so differently.  In this installment of “He Saw, She Saw,” we are roaming Hollywood Boulevard with our infrared cameras photographing one of our favorite subjects – street signs.

I think there are two reasons for our visual differences:

  1. I tend to hone-in on elements; Peter sees the whole scene.  This probably explains his love for wide-angles, and mine for telephotos.
  2. I prefer re-interpreting reality (this holds true for all aspects of my life) – cutting things off, quirky angles, abstraction, etc; Peter  likes capturing reality.

I think the following images are telling in how we “see” differently.  Maybe someday we’ll experience a freaky-Friday-like phenomenon, switch lenses and see what chaos ensues.
