I was on the far side of a parking lot that was across the street from this house, taking this picture, when I spotted the wedding dress hanging on the porch.
I have certain rules that I follow when I shoot, and one of them is that I never want to make a photo that could be construed as making fun of someone living in poverty, or of someone whose sense of decorum is different than my own; that’s why you’ll almost never seen photos of run-down houses that are currently occupied and why you’ll never see photos of people living on the street. I don’t mean to be judgey about people who DO shoot those things – it’s just not my thing.. So, generally, places like this go undocumented with my camera. But, that wedding dress! Over there on the porch, set aside from the other, regular clothes on racks in the yard – I just couldn’t resist.
