Outtakes #2

Aubrie_D2_03.21.10-142

This photo was a total screw up on my part. I accidentally snapped the photo when the lens wasn't focused. Normally, I would have deleted this without a second thought. I was about to hit the delete button when I stopped cold. There was something about this image that I found intriguing. For me, sometimes it's what you CAN'T see that makes a photograph compelling. It leaves our minds free to wander.....

Sweet Aubrie.......

.....this might capture her even better than the first photo, D....she just seems to have that soft, quiet hidden side...I think this might be more of a clear rendition than the clear rendition......

And yeah, what you "cant see" being more intriguing, making room for your mind to wander.....thought this very thing tonight when I was out walking.....The moonlight was so milky and beautiful, filtered through the clouds......couldn't see the moon itself, just its light, and thought that was a cool little metaphor in the moment.....The beauty of some things (or people) can still wash over you, even when they're out of sight........

*loving* this Outtakes thread, D...
