One Man's Story by girltripped One Man's Story by girltripped
I'm not really expecting this to do well, since it's not the sort of photo we usually post here. But it's one of those photos I keep opening up and looking at.

Daily Deviation

One Man's Story by *girltripped At first I really liked this photo because I thought it was a cropped Holga photo, then I saw it was digital and probably put through some judicious digital filtering. Then I looked at it some more and liked it no matter how it was made! ( Featured by cweeks )

I didn't even realize you were the artist until just now, but this has been in my small collection of favorites for a long time and still is.

My instincts decieve me, as always... - When I first looked at the image I knew it wasn't that goog. "Too much this, too little that..." In fact I had to look at it again and again and again and again...

And by now I love it and how it makes me feel and react.

For god's sake, leave Winterwolf alone! This piece got a DD because it's good. And bear in mind people, DD's are NOT awards, they are simply features but on a much bigger scale. I think this is amazing, and its baffling me why he does look a little blurry...maybe dA messed it up when you submitted it? I don't know, but this photo is great :D

forget what people normally post this is an amazing photo. The editing fits right in and is perfect and the idea itself is intense its like a subconscious whisper and at the same time its right in your face screaming its story to be heard.
over all incredible work

wow, thats a really great and powerful photo :)
and i love the light in this, how it all centers around him. they say a photograph or image can say more than a thousand words, and this must be one of the photos that actually proves that :) its almost like you can hear it whispering.

You can tell he's got a story to tell, whether it be in his heart or his head.

I just wonder what's in the cup. And I suspect that's a Bob Marley shirt. Other than that, nice scenery and focus. Sure, it's not the usual composition, but it complements the rest of the gallery well, I think.

this is an eye opener. in a world where all we see is decadence and materialistic desires, this reminds us of the harsh realities we choose to ignore but evidenly can't. great job.

don't know if that was the message you were portraying (or any message in general).
