I was viewing this guy's Youtube channel and in his video he said he didn't expect his photo to be "good." I posted, foolishly for you set yourself up for getting flamed when you are honest that, " Seems to me we should always expect our photographs to be good. But sometimes, we should expect them to be better."
I was thinking that as I was making my breakfast. It made me think about a photo I took in Bulgaria and how when I was taking it I wondered if the conditions would make this a "good" image, but my mood, my feeling, told me that it would be and that this beautiful stream needed to be photographed. Thankfully, I was able to work through the detritus and come up with something that was "better" and also helped me to remember something not directly related to the image itself.
