This picture, I revisited this picture. Not the spot. Someday, I’m sure that I’ll be back.
I am not sure what made me decide to revisit this picture. Something to do…maybe. I had originally intended on submitting this picture for one my entries to the juried show next September, but the file size allowed wouldn’t work for this picture. In the process of not knowing that though, I had posted it to facebook looking for opinions on which pieces I should submit. A fellow blogger and experienced photographer that I respect suggested that I try to add some blue to make it look colder. At the time, I just couldn’t get it to work right and so I gave up. Then, as stated, I discovered the picture wouldn’t resize and still look good for entry anyway and I abandoned it.
The other day that same photographer posted on his blog how he had participated in a 365 photography challenge. I believe that it had been in conversation before, but this time it kind of stuck to me a bit more as I’m constantly on a path looking for something more. As challenges are usually about finding out more about yourself, I decided to try and challenge myself daily for at least a year….but truth be told, I’ll probably be lucky to succeed even a week. Don’t know until we try, right?
I don’t know how I am going to approach this challenge. It won’t just be about photography. There have been things that I have wanted to learn and get back into and I think that I’m going to challenge myself to do that. Read more, cook more, bake more, write more, learn to play that guitar that is collecting dust, and so many other things. It’s a long list, and I’m 41 now so I’m not sure how realistic some of them are-but here is to a new year of figuring it out.
In the meantime, I started with this picture. I’ve always liked it, but it has always needed something. I’m not sure if this version is what it needs…but I am quite fond of this version. I hope that you are too.
Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
