Photo Remake

Every once in a while, I like to take a look through my photo archive and see how far I’ve come from where I began my journey in photography.  Sometimes I even like to try my hand at a “Photo Remake”.  In other words, I like to see if I can recreate certain shots and see how close I can get to the original image while still keeping things fresh.  I know that sounds a bit complicated and even a bit like an oxymoron, but it’s interesting to try.


About five years ago, I was walking along the beach and took a photograph of a flower growing on the edge of one of the small boardwalks that lead from the road to the beach.  Some of you who have been following me for a while might recognize this image.

I hadn’t planned to attempt a “Photo Remake” of this shot when I embarked on my most recent beach trip, but I kind of stumbled upon the opportunity.  Here’s the result.

Attempting to recreate an old photograph in a new light can have interesting results.  Sometimes the result is better than the original, and other times the result is a miserable failure.  Either way, it’s a good way to keep learning.


Until next time…
