This is a photo i took when i was in South Carolina of last summer. I had a job in a photography shop called Old Time Photos. I really love the idea of capturing emotions such as isolation and loneliness in an image. I could say i used the toy soldiers, as a play on the childish actions of leaders deciding to rush into war, using their country men as throw away toys. I also spoke to marines and soldiers who were eighteen and killed people. It sent chills down my spine. Especialy when they would talk about their friends in the past-tense.
I plan to go back to myrtle beach one day, so many nice people there!
