I have a problem naming my photographs. Part of that is the fact that I am not a real word smith, part is because I find many names kind of cheesy, or at least a bit silly, but a big part is that I don’t want to give any preconceptions to my work.
I would rather the viewer make up their own story about what they see.

Sometimes, however, an image suggests a name.

I named this one defender, partly because I see a warrior holding a sword, and partly because it is on the side of an abandoned gun emplacement, set up to protect Victoria Harbour.

 Recently, however I had a photograph change its name. (Yes I know, we artists are strange…)
