"Traffic Jam" pretty much reflects, both in title and visually, how I'm feeling today. Too much to do and too much sadness jamming me up along the way. When I'm in better moods, I get a rather different feeling when viewing this photo. It's one of those that pleases some eye I have way at the back of my mind, makes it sit up and take notice to enjoy. BTW, this was not in my exhibit, but is one I like to use as a note card.

There's something that is occuring to me more and more as I make these posts. I think I should make the distinction again between what I'm saying when a pic is a favorite of mine, and whether I see it as an objectively "good photograph." I do not understand these as one and the same thing. That is, there are very few pix of mine I even tentatively offer as "good photographs." A judgment that includes a great many factors, such as the technical along with the current aesthetic trends and values. But there are numerous photos that I personally like, that please me in some way, and these I call my favorites. This is not to say I do not have some awareness of aesthetics and don't try for, say, good focus. It's just that I am aware of my limitations.

:-) I put up one of the pix I've posted any given day, on my computer desk top. Every time I came to the desk top yesterday, this one grabbed my attention. I'd notice some other little thing or suggested shape within it. Such as I'd never before noted that vague cross-hatching in the upper right. How can eyes see and yet not see? (Hm, is there a poem in there?)
