it's a process

Editing one's own work is a daunting process, one with which I have a sort of love/hate relationship.

I was so sure about the top photograph, and then I was so sure about the second one.

Maybe it depends on whether I had a smoothie or a bowl of yogurt and granola for breakfast. On this particular morning, I am leaning toward the image of the young girl with her mother. (I had a smoothie.)

Soon, I must make a final decision. I am applying for a fellowship and need to turn in my 20 images in the next couple weeks. This particular application has consumed me for months. I will talk about it in some upcoming posts.

For now, though, I must go back to the editing room.

I like the bottom one because of the shoes.....and her expression...

I agree. It's a little more mysterious, too, with the mother being only half in the picture.
