The story behind this photograph.

Here’s a famous image I’m sure you’ve seen before. It was taken during construction of the Rockefeller Center and features 11 workers perched precariously high above New York City on a steel beam in 1932.

Construction workers eat their lunches atop a steel beam 800 feet above ground, at the building site of the RCA Building in Rockefeller Center in New York, Sept. 29, 1932.
And here is my wedding guest version. I’m always looking for unique perspectives from which to tell the story of a couples wedding day and feel that feeding your subconscious regularly is the best way to increase your creativity. A well fed subconscious will always be searching for inspiration and looking to express it’s well stocked library through an artist’s images, painting or music.

Walking past this row of guests I recognized something familiar and stepped back to make an image of this collection of guests talking and sharing a relaxed and beautiful day. It was minutes later that it registered with me where I had seen something similar before, and I became proud of my photograph.

That’s why I love this photograph, an uncontrived salute to a well fed library of images residing in my subconscious.
