Sometimes I feel like I've photographed e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g within a 10 mile radius of my home. Everything of interest that is. About 6 months ago that was really getting me down. Blah, blah, and blah. I don't know when the change came about, but in my head it gradually became okay to shoot something I'd already taken photos of.
At times I still get discouraged; new things, locations, situations are so much fun to work with. Perhaps, however, there is more growth as a photographer re-visiting and seeing with fresh eyes or from fresh angles, or simply finding within the stamina for fresh or renewed energy. Maybe this "new" energy isn't as intense as on the first visit, and lets you see more. Or maybe I'm just thinking up ways to convince myself I can go back for a second or third or fourth look and find more.
Case in point.....this farm. I've stopped here several times, though it's been awhile. It is so classic. It has oreo cows (belted) and a silo, fencing, and barn. You can't really get too close, especially with all the recent snow, but I did find something to enjoy and inspire the other day. And I felt an energy-not a scattered one, but a focused one. That was kind of new itself. I may be growing up after all.....
