You look, but do you see?

I love details, the little things, the nuance. The things so often missed in a small Instagram photo so quickly passed over. For instance, in this photo made at the SCTA El Mirage starting line in May of 2018, Wes White of Four Aces Cycle fame is poised and ready to run. The intensity of his focus, the simple elements of the light, speedo and handlebars–just enough to know that it’s a motorcycle and what kind of motorcycle it is–and the reflection of the starting line and the SCTA official in his visor all add up to tell a story that I love. With its hint of tension and storytelling elements this is one of those photographs that deserves a great print so that you have the time and space to really explore. Or as the famed photographer Dorothea Lange said, “You look, but do you see?’.
