I keep coming back to some photographs. Like this one. I shot it on one of my first road trips, back in 2006, along a bunch of twisty southern-Indiana back highways. It was the first time I walked out into the middle of a highway to get a photograph. I was listening for cars as hard as I could, a little frightened one would come around the curve and not see me.
What I mean by “keep coming back” in this case is that I’ve edited and re-edited and re-re-edited it trying to make it better. I find it to be compelling but imperfect. Every time I get a new photo-editing tool, I try again. I just got full Photoshop, so I worked over this photo one more time. I’m just trying to figure out how to make my photos as good as they can be. That’s what I’m doing in life, really — trying to make it as good as it can be through experimenting and exploring. Can’t you see that this is what my blog is really about? Experimenting and exploring. I’m trying things and learning, keeping the things that work for me and leaving behind the things that don’t. If you keep coming back to this blog, could you be on a similar road?
