Hi Ninja and Trouble,
This is my first time submitting, although I have followed for a long time.
I thought this weeks theme of “hobbies” fit best, as it allows me to surround myself with a few of my favourite pastimes.
Although it’s not as revealing as some of the portraits I take, it’s probably the best capture of me in a relaxed state - curled up with my records and books - which is always the goal in any photography that I do: to reach the comfortable state where you (almost) forget the camera is there.
It’s one of the things I enjoy most about your Sunday Submissions: seeing how people capture themselves in their more intimate moments. It’s incredibly inspiring.
(No vinyl was harmed in the creation of this photograph.)
Well I think you’ve definitely achieved that effect in this picture, as you look very relaxed and inspired by your surroundings. I like to surround myself with similar things and find so much warmth in their sound and their written words. Very well composed too. I dig how your body comes in and out of the frame so fluidly.
