have you ever stumbled across a scene and immediately thought how great it would look in a photograph only to be surprised that it didn’t look good at all?
this was one such scene. i drove down this road and those shoes hanging on the power lines in this lonely area seemed like a “wow” photo in the making.
after i saw it in the frame it didn’t live up to my expectations so i thought, “hmm, i should go back and shoot it again”.
i did that and those frames didn’t capture the feel either. seems like so often the frames i expect the least from look the best and ones like this, well, they just don’t look that great.
it’s kind of like putting a bird in a cage. it looks so much better flying free.
