We’re Rolling A Bit Scandinavian Here

Before I got really serious about the photography, I pored over tons of photography books.  Before I was able to come up with a style all my own, I copied other people.  I had photographs in my head that I needed to do.  I needed to get them accomplished.  It was like a check list.

One of those photographs from the checklist is one of a girl putting a goldfish in a pond in front of a large castle.  Black and white.  Realistic looking, taken in Sweden with this giant gray looking castle in the background.  I have searched high and low for that photo and have tried to reproduce it from memory, but no dice yet.

That doesn’t mean that I can’t use the same style in my photos.  Here for example.  These are some more pictures from the weekend trip to Philadelphia of the American Philosophical Society.  That I made look vaguely Scandinavian looking:
