As I've stated elsewhere on this site, if you analyze anything long enough, both the reasons why something is special and trivial will present themselves. My approach to photography is pretty simple - when Im framing a picture, I ask myself two things: what are the interesting qualities of the subject? and is this worth looking at more than once? Aside from that, Im a big fan of photos that have depth and texture. Meeting those two criterias gives the picture an entire extra dimension to study within the frame.
