It's ironic that I never really noticed that one myself until the other day, when I was reviewing some of my older digital captures.  I was shooting so much to find out what I could do with a "high-resolution" digital camera that I often didn't take the time for more than a cursory look at the results.
I know the feeling, Chris. Each day that I shoot anything, I always save all the images in a dated folder, and immediately pick the "best" ones which I place in a subfolder.

From time to time I look back at the originals from years back, and I find gems that I never considered processing the first time around.

Another trio―these from the end of 2010―made during my one and (so far) only visit to Bali:

(1) Sweeping Up, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia;
(2) Temple Door, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia;
(3) Ketut Badra, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.  Knowing my limitations, I usually confine my portrait shooting to grandchildren, but Ketut* Badra, an art dealer in Ubud, had a serene intensity that begged to be captured by the camera.

―――
*Balinese birth-order name for a fourth child.  The young man who drove us around Bali was also a Ketut.  My wife and I gasped as he wove in and out of traffic, often passing within inches of clusters of motor scooters that were sharing the narrow roads, but he rarely even slowed down and he never nicked a single one.

Thanks.  Right place, right time, decent reflexes, and the picture almost takes itself.

I finally have worked my way back in time in my Lightroom catalog to the beginning of my "serious" digital era: 2008 and 2009.

I had been using consumer point-and-shoot digital cameras for family snapshots and travel mementos since they first appeared on the market―my brother was working for Fujifilm in that era and he kept me supplied with their evolving product line, purchased with his employee discount―but it was only after I acquired a Nikon D40 DSLR that it dawned on me that I could use a digital camera the way I had used a 35mm camera during my youth.  (I also shot medium format and 4x5 film with borrowed cameras when I was in high school and college.  But after I started working, I had neither the time nor the space to set up a darkroom―and I certainly didn't have the money to pay a lab to process film and make prints for me.)

We all tend to say that the camera is the least important contribution to making good photographs, but that 6 Mpx D40 was the inducement that made me resume trying to make pictures that might be interesting to viewers other than myself and my family.  It was also small enough and light enough to carry when my wife and I were traveling, which we did on a shoestring in those days since we were saving as much as we could in anticipation of retirement.

OK, enough backstory.  The attached images:

(1) Erin at Five, Washington, D.C., 2008;
(2) Blue Door, New Orleans, Louisiana, 2008;
(3) Monticello South Pavilion from Dome Room, Charlottesville, Virginia, 2009;
(4) Purple Parasol, Santa Fe, New Mexico, 2009.

OK, here's a new one from me, on a woods walk a couple of days ago.

I just read an interesting news report about van Gogh's last painting, "Tree Roots," so I'm posting this as an homage to him.

Here is the article, for those interested: https://www.theartnewspaper.com/news/van-gogh-s-last-painting

This one is very elegant and the tonality rendition is excellent, Eric.
I also enjoyed the Van Gogh Story on the roots painting. I get to see the classic paintings as large posters whenever I visit my mother at the long term care facility. It really is a treat to see Van Gogh, Monet and others as one metre wide prints!

Thanks John.

I became a fan of van Gogh several years ago when I visited the van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Seeing a big collection of his paintings at one time I felt I finally began to "get" what he was about.
