I'm joining in again with this month's photo-heart connection over at the Kat Eye Studio.
The idea is to find a photo that I have taken this month that I love,
not from a technical point of view but from an emotional one.
I found it a little harder this month, but eventually settled on this one.
I regularly drive past this park & had been noticing the way the shadow of this large tree falls.
It made me really want to photograph it.
So, one morning I left for work a little earlier with the camera in order to stop & take some photos.
Even though it looks like a beautiful morning, the ground was really soggy after huge amounts of rain during the previous week.
I spent about 20 minutes squelching around in the mud, trying all different angles & spots to capture the shadow & the tree.
In the end, I wasn't really happy with the photos that I took, I just couldn't find the shot that I had pictured in my head.
However, I really enjoyed the process- loved that I took the time to stop & have a go.
So, when I was looking through the photos from this month, this one reminded me of how much I enjoy taking photos, regardless of the result.
And that this is not a bad photo, just not the one that I had imagined.
