The Acentos Review



“Sepia Toned Summer”- This photo was taken on a summer day in July. I was wandering through Central Park with my family and we stopped at the lake. There were many people canoeing, fishing and just enjoying the summer weather. I decided to take a picture of a couple laughing and enjoying themselves. I felt that in order to make an interesting photo I needed to capture the moment, but only part of it. I found the stone design that surrounds the couple striking because it provided a boundary to the couple’s joy, and it left some mystery to the photo. Additionally, I decided to make the photo sepia because it provided more of a rustic feel to the photo and its surroundings.  

“Lone Biker”- This photo was also taken in Central Park. I was walking down the bike lane, and I saw this biker speeding as fast as she could around the lane. After she sped down the lane, she slowed down and just went along for the ride. I wanted to capture a sense of loneliness, and despite that loneliness, the biker was still able to enjoy herself. I decided to make the photo black and white, because it just fit the summer mood, which was calming and sweet.
