Like a fine wine sometimes an image or the photographer, that would be me, needs to wait before it can be processed. As an example, recently I made the photograph above yet it was captured in 2011. Did I not take the time to really look at each thumbnail and see the potential? Have the toolbox or skills to make the image in my minds eye? I don't know the answer, but what I do know is, going forward I'm going to slow down and look, really look at my images one at a time.
Like a bee being drawn to honey, it was the vibrant colors that drew me to this image. Yet when making the photograph it was only when I removed the color that it began to sing to me. I allowed myself to explore the many possibilities when creating this image and that made all the difference.
