A week or so ago, my friend Jo Lien posted a rescued photo from her archives on her FB page. I've always lovedlovedloved doing this, so seeing her photo inspired me do dig through my own vault again to see what I could dig up! Some of these photos were just plain looked over. I probably didn't give them my full attention (I was distracted while watching TV as I culled most likely! lol). It's so interesting to see what I considered on the much older photos, unusable. (The oldest one I took THREE ago come Aug 11th!) While I was learning how to shoot in manual mode only the technically perfect would do. Underexposed with grain? No way! Slightly out-of-focus? Getouttahere! Finger/toe/head/ chopping? Inconsiderable! But that's good! That's okay. You need to know the rules before you break them, they say.
The way I shoot now, I do consider those things but they're secondary to the moment I want to capture. And to think that these forgotten new loves were sitting untouched, just a click of the down-arrow passing over them for a fraction of a second, totally rejected.
Here are the rescued new treasures.
