My favourite medium is paint but when I had painted an abstract painting based on a photo I took of a street in London and compared it with my original photo of the scene (which I had taken because I had been able to finish sketching), it struck me that both had something to offer about the feel of that place.
The painting was my interpretation of  how I felt immersed in London. By combining my photograph and a photograph I then took of my painting it added a greater depth and the differences were highlighted and it emphasised indecision even further.
I personally really liked this image as it holds onto the feel of the painting and I was able to tweak the layering until the balance between them was most effective. It was a great moment to find out that other people had liked it too, particularly with so many great photos entered and I am so glad that I did.
I am now working on more in the series and this has motivated me to continue to explore my own City  and capture it in this dual way.
