Unsettled


unsettled

Sometimes I just can't settle.  And when I can't settle, I'm not very decisive and I'm not very productive.  I've been tinkering about with this image on and off for ages now.  I can't tell if I like it or not or if it captures the mood I was going for.  But if I don't post it I will have spent an awful lot of time with nothing to show for it.  And maybe I'll come back tomorrow and love it (or not...).

Take that people who say you should only publish your best work. ;)

Always, always a work in progress.  Some days more than others.  Sigh.

Happy Tuesday. :)


Image created for Texture Tuesday using Kim Klassen texture rest_magic.

  1. I have days like that too! Sometimes I will love an image I work on forever, only to come back the next day and wonder 'what was I thinking?' Always a work in progress...

  2. I never believe in publishing only my best work, otherwise I would never publish anything. I like this, very moody and I am liking that look a lot right now.

  3. Yes, i've been there too! Loving something one day and hating it the next day.
    There is something dark and moody about this image - like a place you've been before, but can't quite remember.

  4. I like it! It is moody. And if I waited for my 'best' work to publish ... well, there might be nothing published. I think we're our own worst critics. It's a great photo!

  5. Great photo and love the texture you've added! It's in the 80's here today and when I saw your image, it looked like a mysterious place to explore...cool and dark!

  6. Not sure what you had in mind that you were going for, but I pretty much like all photos; even my really blurry ones sometimes because I know what they're of. This looks like a wonderful spot to be on a day like last Summer when it was above 100 degrees here in Ohio. :)

  7. I know the feeling, back and forth, weighing options and to do's and not to's .., and time passes and I stand Still ... Oh boy!
    The mood on your image speaks to me, silently awaiting .., just being ... Lovely processing!

  8. Blogging should be a joyful experience, so please share your work - best work, works in progress, and work that didn't work out at all. I LOVE this photo as it has a subtle film like quality and for me this image is all about the risks involved in stepping into those shady areas of life where we don't quite know what to expect. I imagine in the midst of these trees, a shady spot, cool and welcoming.

  9. The scene looks so peaceful, almost as if it's waiting for a young couple--picnic basket and blanket in hand--to enjoy an afternoon under the leafy canopy. So perhaps the message of this image is "promise" that dealing with other images will be easier because of what you experienced working with this one.

  10. I understand that inability to "settle" oh so well! But like you said, sometimes you just have to let the work go. I like this view, celebrating the world beneath the branches. The lovely repetitive marching of the trees.

  11. I'm unsettled myself at the moment, in large parts of my life. I'd like to just go sit under those trees for a while, and not think or worry or wonder what tomorrow or next week or next month is going to bring. For what it's worth, I think your willingness to share your moments of what you see as less-than-perfection is one of your greatest strengths. I am always touched by those posts.
