Day 292 - Challenged

I was challenged today. I got to meet up with a sweet new friend of mine that I met at our San Diego ClickinWalk. We got to spend some wonderful time together just photo chatting...about the business, about the ups and downs, the highs and lows. Can you guys relate? Anyway, she wanted to go do some shooting with me, so we headed over to a nearby hiking trail. To say it was a challenge for me is an understatement. She wanted to observe how I pick out my shots. Glancing around I saw a lot of dried up brush, twigs, some fence posts and dead trees and that was about it, not to mention it was mid day so lighting conditions were horrific. I took on the challenge head on and found this lovely fence post with a cool little hole in the middle of it and the barbed wire wrapped around. I threw in a couple of these weed looking things and viola! I found me a shot. It was neat to be challenged. It really made me think a little more creatively.

This is beautiful. At first I thought it was a tree trunk and didn't notice the barbed wire until I read your post. Well done ;)
