A Place In The Sand

Another photo I initially passed over, even though I looked at it carefully (unlike the one I posted yesterday) when I was editing that day's photographs.

This is why I don't delete. I believe that whenever we view photographs, or any type of art or people or whatever, our state of mind or state of heart has a lot to do with how we perceive what we're looking at. I clearing remember taking this photograph - I liked the story I saw at the time but for some reason I didn't really care for it when I saw it on my screen. I saw it again today and I love it...the story is even better for me now.

Sometimes it works the other way around...I love a shot and then a couple of months later I look at it and wonder what I was thinking. Again, I rack it up to mood, so I don't delete those ones either.
