Editing photos is hard. Do you find that? Bloody hell I do. For me, I think it’s partly because I’m not the most decisive person in the world PLUS I have a tendency to get distracted. Groan. Exactly – not a good combo in the editing process. I’m finding with my New York edits that it’s particularly difficult to cut the cord between the memory of the moment and place and that of the actual image. While the image can provide the spark for that memory … it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a ‘good’ photo! I KNOW I have to try and push the attachment aside to see if the image can stand on its own but geez, it sure is a challenge.
Maybe I just need more coffee.
Walking the Manhattan Bridge at sunset (from Brooklyn across to Manhattan) was one of the many many tips we
were given for our trip. You get the Brooklyn Bridge in your photos and it’s much less busy. Winning. When I took this snap, I had no idea where I was – naughty lone wolf, I had a dead phone (too many photos), dead phone juicer, and about 2 seconds after this shot, a dead camera battery. Oopsy. Thanks to google maps and street view I’ve since worked out that it’s East Broadway 🙂
