What You Can Learn About the Photographer

Here’s another photo that I took while I was supposed to be cleaning out the “closet of doom” the other night. It’s another example of how minor details can sometimes tell you a bit about the life of the photographer.

By the way, does anyone have any suggestions on how I can display these race bibs and medals that I can’t get myself to throw away?


That’s the Ticket!




I like photos that when examined closely contain a lot of hidden clues about the subject, or about the photographer. I think you can learn a lot about me from this photo. For example,

  • I’m a sports fan.
  • I’m a Chicago girl.
  • I’m a bit of a pack rat. (This is only a teeny glimpse at the tickets I’ve saved over the years.)
  • I tend to get very distracted when I’m supposed to be cleaning out the closet.
