When I first thought of a 'flaws and fixes' post (in which I address the many ways I mess up my photography) I knew right away that I could probably devote the entire blog to it...because sometimes it just feels like that's all I do: make mistakes...and muddle through. Right now that feeling is pretty heavy.
For some reason I've had 'visions' and just haven't been able to make them come to fruition. One of which involves dandelions. I've had a picture in my head, and I can't make it happen, no matter how many exposures I snap...and I snapped an awful lot to come up with these. There could be lots of reasons for this, but I'm at a point now where I'm just going to tell myself I don't have the right lens (a cop out to blame the equipment, but let's face it, sometimes it is the truth) and I have to move on.
A new lens is a new perspective. Perhaps I need to see the world differently, and I'm sort of stuck in the same place. (I'm sure my need for a new perspective goes way beyond the need for a new lens, but that's a topic for another post. Or a therapy session.) Perhaps fighting through the frustrations of 'stuck in a rut' is the only way for us to get to a better place.
