Muted Beauty: iPhone Photos by Josh Leonard

  • Posted by SHFT on October 17, 2012 in Photography
  • I kinda wish everything looked the way a Joan Didion novel makes me feel: beauty in the banal, meaning in existential plight, love in loneliness and poetry everywhere. All with an equalizing veneer of burnt light.

    I travel for work a bunch. I'm up both early and late, depending on the demands of the job. I take snapshots on my iPhone and share them with friends through Instagram. Here are a handful of things that I saw that looked the way I wanted them to.

    "One thing in my defense, not that it matters: I know something Carter never knew, or Helene, or maybe you... I know what 'nothing' means, and I keep on playing. 'Why?' BZ would say. 'Why not?' I say."
