It's my second ever feature on the site and first for this year. As always, it's a big deal for me. Having a photo on display for hundreds or thousands of readers is always a good accomplishment. A little background on this photo. I was out one afternoon with Jason form SimpleStudio Lighting, Eric Kim (check out his world famous street photography blog) and his UC Riverside Extension Class. It was the first ever roll of film I shot with my Leica CL and I was just experimenting with the lighting since my camera didn't have a battery for the light-meter. While walking along Broadway St. in Downtown Los Angeles, I saw these two mannequins that reminded me of a Wee Gee quote I read at the Museum of Contemporary Art. I can't quite remember the exact words but the gist was that mannequins reminded Wee Gee of movie extras, they work hard and stand around all day but no one ever remembers or finds the time to know their names. Also, I was intrigued by the fact that even if one of the mannequins was severely scarred, the shop owner still utilized it by somehow covering part of the face. The lesson I got out of this photo that even if there are obvious imperfections, one can still excel in their own field.
