The title of this entry reflects the process I went through with this image a while ago. Basically, it was a favorite image of mine since I took it, some years ago, on a late summer afternoon visiting Gavà beach, near Barcelona.
It was in fact the same exact place (heck it was almost the same exact spot!) where my Off Season project was born, last September, some 4 or 5 years later.
My dilemma was, basically, the following: Is it ‘right’ to use an older, single, standalone image, (which as in this case was just taken for pure fun, and meant for no project at all) on a later specific and ‘delimited’ photographic project if you feel it suits the idea you had in mind and the mood of the project itself ?
The answer came in the shape of some comments about this same photo on flickr (thanks sparadrap!), so now this photo is part of the Off Season project. A part I’m quite proud of, I must say !
I’m sometimes still curious about what others think about that dilemma though…
