My picture from the Oriental Dinner series

Funny, I remember my supervisor Helen looking at my image and thinking of Eggleston’s. At the time I didn’t know which image she was referring to, but I did come across Eggleston’s photograph today at work and remembered what she had said. I’m not sure it’s completely the same, but I know what she meant. Goes to show, that no matter how original you try to be, it’s bound to have been done before, even to the point it looks like someone elses……

I’m not sure if that’s cause to smile (because its Eggleston) or cry (because its Eggleston)…….
