Photo taken by Peter Charney
DESCRIPTION: This is a photography of lanterns that lined the beach during a wedding I photographed a few years ago. However, I try to separate the idea of the picture representing a wedding, from the feeling that the image evokes on its own. To me, the combination of the cool colors of the lanterns against the warmer color of sand is incredibly peaceful and balanced. There is a sense of stillness and serenity, which translates to happiness in my eyes. The pattern of colors shows order and is very relaxing to look at. The colors themselves, are beautifully saturated and pleasant to look at. This photo definitely says “happy” to me!
