The hardest part I have found so far about photography is to stay patient and keep looking for the better angle on a subject. It is very tempting to just dash by, take a few shots and then move on. And when I say “take a few shots”, I already underplay the time it takes to do even that right.
I wish the component images had been a little sharper; I clearly didn’t check closely enough. I was waiting for the lights as I was crossing the road on my late night walk tonight, and my eye was drawn to the bright colouring of the traffic lights on the school sign. At first I thought I’d slice it in thirds and composite a single sign from the three colours, but I think I like it better this way because it captures the light on the trees and footpath as well.
