In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Sincerest Form of Flattery.”

Sebastião Salgado is an influential brazilian photographer and photojournalist, known for showing life through black and white images that are truly striking. The high contrast landscapes bring a dramatic feel to the unique moments and events that he is able to capture through his lens.

Although I will never be a professional photographer, I can aspire to improve on this much-loved hobby of mine. And I decided to share a black-and-white image of my own. This photo was taken on a trip through Arizona, about 5 years ago, when I was making some very important life decisions.

From the exterior, it resembles a ruin. And yet, there is, in my opinion, beauty in that.
