Revisiting old images

Floating Leaves, West Fork of Oak Creek

A post on another blog got me thinking about some of my images.  Some that are on the web site and others that aren’t.  It’s funny how sometimes as an “artist,”  you will like a certain image sometimes and others, you can’t believe you wasted $5 on a ridiculously inane  image ($5-$6 is what it costs to purchase a new sheet of 4×5 film and have it developed after exposure.)

Today, I like this image and wonder why I don’t offer it or display it anywhere.  I think it got lost.

You are reading a blog posting from the photographer Laurent Baig. Feel the wilderness experience.

  1. Laurent, I would be proud to have this one in my own portfolio. I think it is a very evocative and complex composition. In my mind it is head and shoulders above many of the more conventional landscape imagery out there. It shows insight and sophistication and courage to explore beyond the well-trodden landscape templates.

  2. Thanks Guy. As always, it’s always hardest to give oneself credit. I appreciated what I saw then, and I appreciate what I see now. But sometimes doubt, fear, and just the desire to create get in the way of seeing what one has already done.

  3. “sometimes doubt, fear, and just the desire to create get in the way of seeing what one has already done”

    I think you just summed up my whole post in one sentence…

    It’s funny, if that were my shot, i’d have been all over it as soon as i got home. Maybe one person’s afterthoughts are anothers’ superstars…
