photography | the lighthouse

DSC_0186I love this picture for what it isn’t. Wait. What? Things aren’t always what they seem? Don’t judge a book by it’s cover? Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder? I don’t know what would best describe it. This “lighthouse” is actually a faux structure on top of a restaurant in Florida. What you can’t see is the busy restaurant below surrounded by shops and cars and people. People snap photos of actual lighthouses all the time. The fact that this one probably doesn’t get captured is exactly what made me want to. I’ve sold many of this print in my shop. People love it. I wonder if they love it for what it is or for what they want it to be?
