Trying to come up with good content for a photography blog gets to be a little tough after a while. I guess if your a full-time photographer or journalist it’s not that tough. Or maybe if you’re a travel photographer who is always on the move visiting new places every week, I guess filling the blog with exotic imagery may not be so difficult. But me, I’m just a regular working guy trying to explore my passion of photography.
So that got me to thinking that maybe I should have just shot like crazy for a couple of years first THEN started the blog. That way I would have had a slew of images that could have fed this blog for some time. The problem with that plan is, of course, that even when you shoot a slew of images you only end up with a small handful of desirable photos, at best. Honestly, out of the thousands of photos I’ve taken over the last few years I only have around twenty or so that I think are really good and maybe another dozen that I would consider decent. That’s not too many but I’m a pretty harsh critic of myself.
Anyhow, I was browsing through my archives and came across this image from last year. I remember taking it. My wife and I were leaving a local restaurant and we were greeted by this rainbow as we walked to our car. I grabbed my camera and shot it, all the while thinking that the houses didn’t make too exciting of a scene befitting the ‘bow. It ended up being one of those shots I just wrote off and never looked at again. I still don’t think it’s that great of a shot but it’s all I have for now. Maybe next time.
