I'm going to take Major Bedhead's advice and (at least on some days), talk about what I was trying to capture in a given picture, to give those of you who are so inclined something on which to comment specifically.
This is from a display of candy at FAO Shwartz in New York. As soon as I saw it, I wanted to take pictures, because it just looked so perfect. I wanted to get rid of any and all background, and just focus on the colors and patterns of the various lollipops. The side angle (hopefully) stretches out the display so that it seems to go on forever - an all-you-can-eat buffet of sweets.
Even though I don't like candy, this picture just makes me feel happy. I guess there's something about this kind of scene that just captures the the awesome decadence of childhood, even if my childhood decadence wasn't exactly like it.
What do you think?
