The Beautiful Thing That Was

I headed back to the spot where I took my most published photo with the goal of recapturing the same photo nearly a year and a half after I took the original. While DECOY’s great artwork was long gone (completely removed a few months after it was posted), not much had changed on site.

My challenge in taking this photo was to capture the exact same composition even though I was using a different camera, different lens, and different lighting. After a few final touches on Photoshop, I think the two photos are pretty close.

The original photo was on the cover of The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears by Dinaw Mengestu. You can purchase a copy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
