“The Arms” Photograph

A good piece of advice for photographers in general is to make what you find interesting the main subject of the photograph not just a part of it. This woman’s arms are a good example. I find them fascinating but even this close they almost get lost in the clutter particularly with her distractingly stripey dress and if I had been further away when I took the picture they would hardly warrant a second glance.

I actually find that if I look at these arms long enough they take on a life of their own, becoming detached from her body, and sometimes looking more like the legs of a strange animal. But perhaps that’s just me...

Photograph taken at “Sunday Walking Street”, Chiang Mai, Thailand
