The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

The fun part about digging through the archives is rediscovering old photos that have not been processed and long forgotten. What captured my attention, this time, is the strange blue cast. I have no idea how it got there. I could understand if the photo was taken in very early morning, but it was nearly 11 am, albeit in mid-fall. So, rather than do color correction, I stayed with the blue which seemed to create a more dramatic mood, maybe of despair. The lighter background provides a hint of hope, metaphorically speaking. It's good to revisit old work, for our perspective and vision are always changing.
