I often take hundreds of photographs when I am out and about. And when it comes to the editing stage some stand out more than others. Sometimes I go back to them a few days or a week later and I discover a different perspective to those that didn’t make the grade the first time. Maybe it is because I am calmer the second time around. Is life like that too? Sometimes I think it is good to walk away from something and then come back to it. That way we can settle the emotions, take a deep breath, take time to think. And then, well then, we go back and discover something new, something more beautiful, or thought provoking.
These are two photographs I almost walked away from. But thank god for that ‘taking a second look’. They are now amongst my favourites from my recent trip to Cornwall.
