I finally finished up my new Christmas wreath so yesterday I took it to my favourite location to take photographs. It’s a little collection of three old sheds sitting side-by-side and I like to hang the wreath on the one remaining door. It’s a great rustic backdrop. It’s a little hard to get to – in the summer there are monster thistles and in the winter I have to plow through dead monster thistles and a pile of snow.
It was freezing cold and after about half an hour my fingertips were hurting so bad that I had to pack up and get back to my car. But before I did, I got out my iPod, turned around, and snapped a photo of this little grey shed.
As I drove home, I knew in my heart that my wreath shots were not going to be any good. Not my fault – just a contrast issue. I was going to have to come up with a better idea for a backdrop. Into the trash went my morning’s work. There’s no use forcing something when you know it is just not happenin’.
But I did love this shot of the little grey shed. Oh my, I love #snapseed.
