That’s the way I like to approach art. I think I do my best work, and sometimes my worst work, when I am either not thinking at all or when I need to think of something, if that makes any sense. By not thinking I mean not preconceiving. Just going out and shooting whatever I come across that interests me. It can be a grand scene or a tiny detail – pretty, pretty sad, or pretty strange, it doesn’t matter. And by thinking of something, I mean when I’m just not finding anything, or the light is just not good for a normal approach, or I don’t have the “right” gear with me and I have to make a compromise. I find that if I push myself in those situations, instead of giving up, I come up with something satisfying that I never intended. Which takes me back to the not preconceiving thing. It doesn’t always work, but when it does it’s a good thing.
It works for me, whether at the time of shoot or later during processing. It’s the circle of my photography.
Very nice. The composition is wonderful and that tiny tree in the background is the icing on the cake.
