Absolutely awesome shot and processing Brandon! Well done!by knapptimephotography, on Flickr
This is a good friend of mine. Born deaf in one ear, she has lost much of her hearing in the other. This image is a perfect representation of her and of the theme sound and silence. In her words, the lack of color and the flat gray tone of the image represents how the world sounds to her.... Lifeless and dull, everything jumbled together, no distinction...... gray and flat.
In my words, her eyes say everything she thinks. Since hearing is not her strong point, what she sees is her strongest sense. She takes in the world through her eyes, but her eyes are very expressive as well. By selectively coloring them, to me it shows the sounds of her life and the impact they have. Her eyes sparkle when she smiles and are a true window to her soul. When she is angry, you know it. when she is sad, it is perfectly clear, her eyes are the sounds of her life. To me, this image is a perfect representation of her in every way.... sound and silence
