Would you like to go on a little journey? Let me walk you through the range of emotions you might feel when you're asked to write an article on your five best photographs. At first you'll think, "some shameless self promotion? Yes please!". Then, in your ego-inflated state, you'll foolishly ponder to yourself, "how will I only choose five photographs?". However, after hours of scrolling through your images, wondering when exactly they might start looking good, you realize that you'll settle for photographs that are halfway decent.
