Oh, yes, during the years there have been a few things I photographed and re-photographed obsessively. There was even a particular statue like in the OPs post. I could swear, one time it jumped in despair as I approached.

Yes, I agree. It's somewhat infuriating when you approach a subject from all angles, with different light, with different camera or film or lens or whatever, only to get something that is still not quite right. What is it that you see in it? What do you hope to carve out of it? Difficult to say. What's not difficult to say is that you learn a lot.
