Shoe by Herbert Levine, 1953. Photo by Richard Rutledge.

This is one of my favorite photos thus far. I believe it is the unusualness that drawn me to it. The use of shutter speed is just perfect making this photo not perfectly crisp but almost there. I also love the models expression, without it this photo would not be as strong as it is. The pop of color really compliments the direction of the string straight to the model. I hope to capture a simiar photo like this one some day.
This photo is very playful. Ranging from the fun colors to the disfigured shapes, a “wacky” world is portrayed. Perhaps it is the models view on the world or simply her just her personality. Overall, i love the cropping and the use of colors in this photo.

I love the direction this photo. The lines play a huge role in making what this photo really is. I enjoy the choice of color the photographer chose to use on the overall photo. It successfully made a modern component of our world in the present in the past!
