Some inspiration is just plain better than others. Stronger, more specific, more unique; some inspiration is worth waiting forever for. It's the kind of inspiration that doesn't hit you like a flash; it's more like you just realize that you always knew it. it takes hold and points and composes and whispers in your ear what it's supposed to look like and then before you even realize it's there, the photograph has been created. Such was the case with the second photograph, Hug a Tree. I love this photo, it just works so well, and describes two different ideas (the Free Hugs movement, and the old saying "When you're lost, hug a tree"). the first is not the same per se, but still turned out different, but better, than I had originally conceived. I call it Jigsaw (because it describes both the wood wall and the puzzle).
