Sometimes when I don’t have any new projects to work on or I’m feeling a little lack of inspiration, one of the challenges I give myself is to go back through some of my old pictures and try to find a shot that I may have never noticed before. You know how it is when you’ve been looking at photos non-stop, they all start to look the same and quite uninteresting at that. But surprisingly, it helps to go back later and look at them again with “fresh” eyes. Here’s one I found from ’06, looking out into my Mom’s backyard. Editing my photos back then, I thought this was completely unusable because the blinds are in the way and the lighting isn’t great. But today, I just love it.
