I’m in a bit of a slump with my photography right now. Perhaps floundering is the best way to describe it.
As much as I’d love to be out shooting, I find myself sapped of energy and creativity. Part of this, I am certain, has to do with managing the energy left over from a tiring work week. Some of it is time of year–its cooled down very quickly here, and I find the suddenness of the cooler evenings rather a shock to my system. As much as I love the fall, the cooler weather always slows me down. Finally, I have been traveling a bit and have some additional travelling up and coming. This puts me out of my daily routines, and I become much less organized.
Perhaps this is what appeals to me about this photo. The straight lines and would-be orderliness. Its also a path, which I tend to photograph over and over and over. Paul Lester (http://www.paullesterphoto.com/wordpress/?p=2397) recently wrote about this in one of his posts. I have more photos of trails and paths than I can count.
Why–who knows–but I do, indeed, find my trail photos deeply satisfying. Isn’t that enough of an explanation?
Good day to all.
