Title • high key contemplation

This shot was taken back in February, at the same time as this one, and I think it's the last salvagable shot from my archives. I found it in a folder I'd created at the start of this year called 'possibles', which I promptly filed and forgot about. I'm not sure why I didn't put it up at the time, as I quite like it now ... who knows.

I did take a few shots today, and if any of them had been any good I would have put them up, but they were all somewhere between poor and atrocious. Hopefully I'll be able to come up with something tomorrow, not least because I promised myself, that come hell or high water, I'd post an image a day – so tomorrow should be interesting ;-)

Oh, and I hate to admit it, but this image is cropped. I normally don't crop anything that I put up (though sometimes rotate images slightly if a major horizontal or vertical is misaligned) as I try to go with the composition that I saw at the time I took the shot. But I cropped about 20 per cent of this image (from the bottom and right of the image) as these areas were too under-illuminated to be rescued convincingly.
