When I went south to my home town for midsummer celebration this year I was thinking about a post a colleague made a couple of days ago: Midsummer madness. I decided to try to bring back the perfect midsummer picture.
The conditions were perfect: happy people, dancing children, a beautiful maypole and sunny weather. We had a fantastic day. I took a lot of pictures. Late Sunday evening I came back to Stockholm and was excited to go through all my pictures…which showed a lonely maypole and no happy dancing people at all. Not what I had planned to show and share. Just a pretty bad picture with a touch of melancholic back light. Again.
Sometimes it´s very frustrating to love pictures but to be a lousy photographer.
