I have been enjoying posting a photo a day on Facebook, every day since January 1st. It is a challenge that is making me a better photographer and hopefully more in tune with new concepts and details. Some days are frustrating and I feel like I have no pictures "good enough" and other days I get 3 or 4 great ones and can't choose which ones to post. Certain friends have suggested that I "save" those really good ones for the "less creative" days, but that feels to me like wanting to reread "Hamlet" and having someone hand me the Cliff notes. Not good enough. They are only MY rules but I have a sense of integrity and who am I cheating by posting an older image? Me, that's who.
So, I stick to my own rules - a new photo every day - TAKEN that day. So, what to do with the "good" ones that didn't "make the cut?" I thought I'd show some here and discuss why they didn't get posted on Facebook.
Really cool look at the inside of a pointsettia, but I got an even cooler version right after this one. (see next)
Here's one from last weekend that I really liked:
Thanks for visiting friends. Keep on shooting and improving and letting me know what YOU like and don't like.
