I love this John Lennon quote because it reflects my life.
I love taking pictures and I love posting 1 picture daily on Instagram,
but rarely is the picture I post the first (or second or third . . .) shot I take.
I was looking at my computer desktop this morning and it was filled with a ridiculous amount of photos all of the same thing.
The other day I wanted to take a photo of my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt to show Jann of Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson because she recently posted a pic of a similar quilt she found at an estate sale.
I literally took more that 50 shots (and edited most of them) just to get one pic to post on Instagram.
That led me to take my grapevine basket off the bench to get it's own photo, but I just wasn't satisfied with the photo.
I added a few more flowers, but I thought the photo needed more color
so I swapped the flowers in the basket, but I still wasn't sure about the photo.
I placed the basket on my sewing machine base table in the garden,
tried it on a tree stump by my garden house
and then on the patio table.
My last attempt was to put the basket on one of the garden chairs
and this was the final edited shot I posted on Instagram.
After looking back at all the photos to write this post, I am wondering if all those shots and all that editing was a waste of time because I really like this view that I took about 40 shots before that final picture.
If I listen to the words of John Lennon, all the photos I take
and all the editing is not wasted time because I am enjoying myself.
Now my only problem is deciding how to waste my time tomorrow.
