My worst photos

As I understand, underground photos tend to look “nice”. No defects, a well-set composition and even a horizontal horizon line. They often go with a straightforward and obvious text. What is the purpose of this alienated reality?

I have pretentiously named a folder “my worst photos” and started going through my exploration archives. After each folder, after each file that could have been truly Bad, I felt more and more disappointed and upset. ALL of them weren’t bad enough. Is there possibly any room for perfection in choosing the worst shots?

It took at least two months to accept the fact that they’re not worst. Anyway, you can’t have it all at once – technical defects, lack of focus, composition, lighting, and stupid photoshop processing. And all of that was initially done in the desire to create a “nice” photo.

The results of my selection are presented below. They are not Worst, but are indisputably bad enough. I still have a lot to work on.

This one needs a comment. It says “DICK” in Russian. The last letter (Й) is mirrored because of the author’s mistake.

To keep you interested, I’d like to say that one of the above was made in a reserve command post bunker in the metro. Guess which one!
