You can’t be lucky 100% of the times. 🍀😅 As it happened to the other photographers trying (unsuccessfully) to achieve the same London Eye shot I posted yesterday, sometimes I too fail to achieve the shot I had in mind.
An instagram feed like mine is often a showcase of success, luck and so forth, but I’m surely not immune to failure at all. It’s how I learn and react to it that makes all the difference (when I happen to learn something from it). There are days though, when no matter how hard you try the pieces just don’t fit together. And this can be very much true in places like London, where the sky is ever so unpredictable. Yesterday for example, a few friends and I tried to achieve another perfect alignment between the sun and one of the city landmarks, but it all turned grey and dull just moments before the event, rendering all our efforts pointless.
When you look back at some of those efforts and the images they produced, you can’t but dream at what could have been, with just a tiny bit of cooperation from the sky.
And on a quiet afternoon, you turn to Photoshop to create your own version of reality, where that dream becomes true and the sky rewards you with the most majestic array of colours you con possibly think of.
Until one day, after you’ve tried over and over again, it does become true.. But until then… 😉 —
