No matter how much you improve your craft as an artist, there are always pieces of work that you have created that remain timeless and hold a special spot in your creative heart. In 2011, I found a beautiful railroad bridge in New Haven, Indiana that resulted in the creation of such a piece. At the time, I did love the photo, but I didn't quite realize how much I would end up continuing to love it. It stuck out so little in my mind, despite blogging very heavily in 2011, I never actually blogged about this.
Despite that, for whatever reason, I never revisited that location for the longest time. Well, the time has come! This month, roughly 10 years since that original image was taken, I finally found my way back to the location of one of my more popular images. This is just the first blog of two, as I have plans to go back and do a few more things here (feel teased!). For now, enjoy the images below, starting with the original image from 2011 (available for print here), followed by my first round of modern versions taken at the same location.
Let me know in the comments below if you have a piece you created years back that you still love, and if you have thought about recreating it again with your current level of skill!
