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.

    This is a beautiful example of why we shouldn't delete those pictures we take that on first glance seem unusable.

    Wishing you a scent-sational day my Shutter Sister.

    Oh, I love this! It has a sort of vintage feel to it. I agree with your going-back-in-time theory. I have also found some lost gems that way. When are you going to join flickr and show off your mad skills?
