Bare Trees Reflected In Flood Water

Sometimes I find looking back at old images a bit painful – it’s an odd type of after-the-fact disappointment when you realise that something you used to quite like, or used to be proud of, is actually not that good. It also causes me slight embarrassment when people react favourably to such images.

Of course looking back at your work and feeling like that is perhaps better than wondering where it all went wrong (but naturally I have my fair share of that too).

This image (above, from March 2011) is one that I’ve made similar versions of since, with different cameras and film types – it’s also currently one of the oldest ones that I can go back to and feel 100% happy with.
