Photo Themes from January and February | DesignNotes by Michael Surtees

Photo Themes from January and February

It has been a couple months since I collected all the photos that I shot in one place. Instead of going chronological I decided to group them organically to see what consistent themes appeared. There weren’t any surprises like the NYC set that is basically stuff that caught my eye outside. More surprising was that there was a set for windows and reflections. I had no idea that there was enough to create a set. Reading about the weather, apparently this was one of the warmest on record for NYC. That might explain why there’s a shot of me in shorts…
