This photo would fit well into a project aimed around the ideas of “commitment” or a series on “North American Living”. ironically of course.
This was a sign outside what seemed to be a small, walk in, walk out law office in the lower east side of Manhattan.
Walking around with my Nikon AF600 (a small point a shoot 35mm camera) while waiting to play a concert at a small venue, I spotted the sign. Having no idea how to photograph it though. I walked up and took a picture of it for my own personal memory, knowing the composition would hold no value. Later, however, after developing the roll, I noticed that I accidentally captured a bus with a American Flag on the side. This, I think, adds some sort of value to the image. Leading one to impose an idea of a downfall in North American culture as to the idea that divorce as become a way of life and a cultural norm. I think that it speaks to the area of commitment and instant gratification all at the same time.
I think it’s a neat picture.
Shot on some expired Blacks 200iso film that I found at a thrift shop. the best thing about this film is that it has the processing included. Free developing. Go team!
anyways, thanks for reading.
