Taken from behind the Leland Stanford Mausoleum, I tried to create a ghostly effect to match the feeling of the place. This is one of those images that has more meaning to me than the viewer, who are not aware of the time, place, or purpose of the photo. I've often seen photographers excited about their work but not receive the same enthusiasm by others due to the personal attachment to the piece. Yes, we should create images for ourselves but be aware of how the work may or may not convey a response from others.
