Yesterday I walked through a part of town I haven't been to for a long while. Passing past an abandoned house I remembered an image I took on film with my Minolta XD7 and 50mm lens (almost two years earlier, as I discovered later while comparing my results):
So I took a new shot, this time with a M39 Jupiter-8 50mm lens mounted on my Nex3. Not trying to replicate the first attempt, but to shoot something similar. It was a different time of day and the light was not the same. I did as I felt on that moment, with the experience and attitude I gained in the meantime. I processed the image to my current taste and finished everything before looking at the original image:
I like the new image better, for the subtle detail of the wallpaper contrasting the decay, and for the more centered composition. I did not try to "beat" the previous attempt, I was just curious to see what I will come up with after two years.
Do you "revisit" some places, subjects or themes? Care to show your results in succession? Or share the experience? Feel free and invited to add to this thread.
