i've been paying more attention to photos lately, thanks to this awesome photographer in my life. i love the way taking photos slows you down a little bit and makes you notice things you might normally glaze over. i love that walking around with one of my toy cameras makes me tilt my head and consider sites in a new way.
of course i also love the tricks and techniques lots of professional photographers use. take these photos by Romain Laurant. at first i wanted to know how he manages to make some of his photos happen. but it's much more fun just enjoying the art and whimsy of them and imagining a world where people spilled out of subway cars and walked around with bubbles surrounding their heads.
