Shooting Hip

This photo of the fence is my favorite photo, as of late. I need to take more, but I don't. I think it's a conflict of why I'm taking them. Is it for me? Is there a show I need to prepare for? Does someone want to see this stuff? I love the squeezing of the mind that comes from a good afternoon looking for images. It's so consuming, and exhausting that it creates the same feeling as a good workout. When I walk around the neighborhood and take pictures it's a lot harder than anything else because I have to force myself to see things differently, to see what makes everything special. Therein is the reason I need to do it more. Plus, I'm concerned that I'm just taking pretty pictures and not telling a story with these kinds of images. I think that's a big part of my reticence.

Oh, and this one below is a close second. I'm trying to not use color as a crutch, and also try more texture.
