my best shot

I love looking at photos, and deciding which ones I like, which ones I don’t, and sometimes why, though I have little technical experience. Which is why the series ‘My Best Shot‘ in the Guardian is so interesting. There, well-known photographers choose their best photograph, tell the story behind it and say why they think it is their best shot.

Platon spent five days in Moscow and almost burst into tears with the stress and nerves (and possibly the sniper guards) but was granted permission to take Putin’s photo. One of the shots he took on that day won 1st Prize in the World Press Photo portraits category and it seems like the man himself liked the pictures.

The other photographers and photos are no less interesting. Take a look.
