I took this photo at Central Park in New York City, during the summer in 2013. On that day I had a chance to meet Giovanni Amatore, someone that I connected with on Instagram. Giovanni is an excellent photographer that took the time to show me how to use a camera. It was his teaching that really challenged me to try and take better photos, and this photo is one of the results. It was taken on a bridge in Central Park, and looking at it reminds me to look at things from different perspectives. When you’ve done something or been at a place for a long time you have a certain view of things. Whether the view is right or wrong doesn’t matter. What matters is that it’s always the same view. If you change the perspective, you change the picture. And if you apply that logic to life changes, the road can lead to some pretty exciting things, including meeting great new people like Giovanni.
