So here's the low down on the story behind this image and why I regret taking it. During the shoot out, we spent some time in the most amazing little statue garden and the image below wouldn't stop haunting me.
It's part of my postcard collection from day 1, and I was hoping to come up with something equally compelling but when it came time to take the shot, I knew it wasn't right. I wish I would have trusted my instinct and let it go beacuse I knew the angle, pose and composition were off. I quickly gave up and wandered down the way and changed focus. I must have spent five minute trying to compose this shot, but in the end I love it a heck of a lot more than the one up there! And to the nicest lady on Facebook that said she'd love to print it, well I hope you can feel the huge karmic hugs I've been sending you!
So here I am stumbling down this creative path, trying to pick myself up each time always hoping I keep falling forward. I've always struggled with still life photography, so this is a small victory for me. And as I'm typing this, I hear Yan's advice ringing in my ears, "I would encourage you to celebrate in small victories and allow yourself to celebrate yourself."
So Yan, if you happen to read this, know that I'm slowly finding hope that somehow I may be good at this and I am grateful for your encouragement and support!
Wishing you all many victories and a reminder to celebrate each and every one! And if you are up for sharing one with us, we will celebrate right along with you. Your comments bring JOY!
It's Friday friends, if you are feeling like you need a little extra love, go ahead and hit up that heart button down there, there can never be enough love in this world!
