Silver & Light
This photographer is inspiring. He is out doing something that I don't think I could ever do which is invest everything in one project and hope for the best. He is putting his soul out on a line and creating something amazing which is what I would love to do.
I do share his frustration. I think a lot of what is stopping me from going out and doing something amazing is that I don't know exactly what I want to do. All I know is that "what" I want to do is going to tell a story. I get frustrated with photography all the time. Photos not turning out because of simple mistakes or complex mistakes. Usually when these things happen I fall back to my basics and shoot 35mm film on a Pentax K1000 for a while and find my groove again.
Tomorrow I'm going to go out and shoot. The next day I'm going to go out and shoot. Hopefully I can find my rhythm again and continue to pursue this idea that there is something greater waiting for me to discover it and squeeze it for everything I hope its worth.
