I’ve been experimenting with black and white photos a lot lately after seeing some of the works by Ragnar Axelsson . I think he is a brilliant photographer, and if you have’t see his work, I highly encourage you to check it out! I’ve felt really inspired and impressed after seeing his work. Ragnar Axelsson’s photos truly show a story told by the people. I don’t pretend to have any photography that could rival his own, but you have to start some where, right? I thought I’d share a few of my photos with you guys. I’ll have a better put together post next week!
The first one was taken from an overpass at Santa Monica, the second photo was taken at Huntington Gardens.
These guys are called Chinese guardian lions or Imperial guardian lions and were believed to have powerful mythic protective benefits in China through 206 BC-AD 220, and are still popularly found at entrances today.
