So... You've seen my Year in Review. Well heres an extra special alternative retrospective on 2017. I'll set the scene for you guys. One sleepy evening, in a little village called Saltaire. There was a boy called Ryan. A girl called Hannah & a little black Cat called Gatsby. (Meoww) In a cozy room they sat upon a little blue sofa. & on this night it was decided that a different take on last years best bits should be put to paper. Amidst the glow of laptop screens, Yorkshire tea & shit TV an idea was born. Here are Hannah's twenty nine favourite photographs of 2017 by me Shutter Go Click Photography along with why they made the cut.
"Old school Americana she looks cool as fuck. I love her dress! I really like it when a Bride makes a bold dress choice."
"She looks like a beautiful doll & I wanna squish her face"
"It's just weird innit." (Laughs)
"I love the colours & swishy veil"
" I love the prism action. I feel like it's a painting.
"It's very arty. It's stylish & shows progression in your work."
"She looks proper peaceful & I'm really tired & want to go to bed."
"I really like the geometry & negative space"
"This one made me do a weepy. They just love each other. I can't wait to find someone who I love that much" (Laughs) "It reminds me of when we got married."
"Feels like a fairytale, Like that one where angelina wore those horn things on her head."
"Awwwwwwh look at his face he's so chubba" (Side note ~ Referring to cat, not bride)
"I like this photo because of the story you told me about it & how her dad made the archway. I love it when you put one of them in the other one."
"I love the circles, it's like a seeing eye picture." I ask "What do you see?" Hannah replies, "Divorce"... (Pauses then laughs) "Between me & you not them"... I’m sure they’re very happy."
"This is the first time I've seen you do both of them inside each other. I love that he looks uncomfortable inside her." (Must... resist... inappropriate... jokes... - Ryan)
"I love how happy she is, I love this because people always say that you don't take any smiling pics at weddings which is bollocks."
"They are the cloud people which is cool"
"It feels very Summer & I know you'll be writing this in Winter so I'll want to be in Summer"
"All of my favourite things in a photo, symmetry, colours. Plus she has my favourite face in the world... Oh actually maybe in my top 7" (I really hope I'm in there but I daren't ask - Ryan)
"It's another fairytale & I like red apples because they shit all over green apples"
"She's inside him & there's so much going on & I love the light & the bokeh which is a word you taught me. You also taught me the word Moiré & repeatedly paused the TV to ask me what it was until I remembered... That has no relevance but it is a fact."
"This photo reminds me how good you are."
"This proves I'm not always right. (I now have this statement in writing ~ Ryan) I didn't like the unedited version & you said 'just wait' & you were right."
"I like the confetti from behind. It's a risk but I love seeing the faces of the guests. It was brave."
"It's just so cool. It represents how hard you've worked to have someone fly you out & how proud I am of you."
"Are they on a fucking game show. Have they been selected for the final round. What game show are they on? Can I play?"
"I love the light, I love fancy lights. You always wang on about triangles. Like the other day you said Hannah get in that light. Then you suddenly stopped & said... Actually, I don't want to take your picture because it looks like you have a beard."
"Reminds me of The Great Gatsby book and film. Side note: I Preferred the book... Also my Cat is called Gatsby."
"I love the double exposure it reminds of those little Swedish clocks with the couple that come out & kiss each other. Hang on I don’t think they’re Swedish. They might be Amsterdamian?"
