Frustration - June 29, 2005

This photo has just intimidated the crap out of me. OK, not the photo so much as the building itself. It’s a photo I took almost two months ago, and fiddled with, and then twiddled with, and then fiddled with some more. To my eyes, there’s just so much there. Unfortunately, as a result, I’ve been left feeling inadequate trying to get what’s there “properly” onto the… well the screen in this case.

Now that I think about it, though, even though this picture was taken only a couple of months ago, I had no idea what I was doing then. Or should I say a heck of a lot less of an idea of what I was doing than I do now. I think I need to go back and return to that site and look at it again with new eyes and start taking some more pictures.

But time. I’m bothered by how little time I have to do that. Now that I’m employed full time (and will be for the next few months) it’s so hard to take time to go on photography expeditions as I used to. I wish that I lived right among the things I like to photograph.

As it happens, as I was finishing the final version of this to go up on this site and now as I write this with the photo in front of me, I'm listening to The Cocteau Twins, Garlands. Somehow that album is just very appropriate music to be listening to while working on this particular photo.


Symmetry !

I think it works well, not knowing the building probably helps. :-)

Simple yet busy, good colours too.

That isnpires me to dig out a Cocteau Twins album, haven't listened to them for quite some time.
