This is an image that I personally just love, but for reasons that are unrelated to how successful the image may actually be. This is a pretty common occurrence for us photographers, we fall in love with images for reasons that are not always related to how well the image works from an art perspective. Now I have had it beaten into my head that you need to remove yourself from your images and evaluate them unemotionally and only display the images that truly work. I say rubbish! Well at least I think it's important to allow ourselves to love an image just because we do. I photograph my life, sometimes I strive to make great art from the everyday, but sometimes I am just recording moments that are only important to me. This is one of those. I actually do think this image works on all levels, but maybe it doesn't convey to anyone else the emotions I had when taking this picture.
