i went out for a feature today and stopped at this beautifully colored building that i’ve been eying for quite a while.
walking up to the scene i became really anxious because it looked like a scene out of alex webb’s hot light/half-made worlds book. which is one of my favorites that i’ll be buying soon.
i got all butterflies in the stomachy and started working the scene. it was an auto shop and there were just folks lingering all around and a guy waxing his truck.
anxiously looking at my take back at the office i realized that the frame just wasn’t there. it was one of those scenes as a photographer your dream of.
in talking with some co-workers i assume that i totally overworked the scene. but, fortunately, the people there were really nice and said i’m welcome back any time.
if at first you don’t succeed try again right?
