Well, it hasn’t taken me long to learn that the task I set myself, shooting with the theme of Unintended Beauty in mind, is harder than I imagined it would be. When I came up with the notion (all of maybe 24 hours ago), I had nebulous ideas about decaying flowers and oily machinery and rubbish of one sort or another.
Perhaps I should have worked harder at defining what I was trying to do. On the other hand, I like to leave myself open to serendipity. As it stands now, I’m leaning towards images of old flowers and leaves, with a few rocks and some dirt thrown in.
I’m going to let that be OK, and see where I get led. Such a mindset fits nicely, I think, with the Instagram post that impressed me earlier.
I'm embarking upon a learning experience. Success is not required.
