Going up, going down / by Mario Mirabile

I must be getting harder to please, or at least more critical of my own work. I look at pictures which I took two or three years ago and I wonder what I was thinking sharing them online. Pictures which I would have happily posted then are now relegated to the dusty back rooms of my Lightroom catalogue, never to see the light of day. I guess it has something to do with an imagined need to achieve some sort of perfection, and anything which doesn't constitute a step in that direction is unworthy to be shared. This is, of course, pure nonsense, but I still need to convince myself of that.

With that in mind, I present two images for your consideration. One, I feel, meets the necessary criteria for publication, the other I'm not so sure about. I'll leave it for you to decide which is which.
