I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

The slush pile

Here's a pretty abstract to start your day.

I've been submitting entries to juried photography shows, and so have been going through thousands of pictures, over and over again. Because photos in a show have to be large enough to be printed and hung, many of my favorite pictures aren't eligible because they're details I've cropped out of much larger images.

Or because, like this one, they didn't quite work. This is the sort of thing you need a tripod for -- taking a long exposure of moving water to get that feathery effect without having everything else blur as well. But I was in Inverness, and didn't have a tripod, and so this is what I got, blurred leaves and soft whirls and whorls of water.

But I like it anyway.
