3+ years ago when I first picked up a camera, I was a big fan of sharing my work on flickr. Not having any ambitions of anything more than posting cool shots to flickr groups. Once I learned my pictures were unique and "people" started t appreciate and spend more money than I had on my photos, I realized that many of my original images were fucked with a capital "F".
I had never imagined printing them or showing them at anything other than 72dpi on Flickr. Needless to say I found myself in a pickle. Many of my favorite and favorites of others were lost and "f"ucked forever. Saved at 72dpi and flattened. "f"ucked.
I've tried to re-shoot several of those over the years and never been satisfied. I'm not sure this (image above) is any better than the original, but I'm happy about the outcome. I've had major amounts of family tragedy recently and this image is a result of the release of that stress and emotional rollercoaster. "f"ucked... I can't believe I saved SO many images at 72dpi?!?!
