343/365:: GONE FISHING • I'm still here. She's gone. In the computer shop. Wouldn't even turn over when I tried to start her up this morning. I tried everything. Pretty sure a new battery will get 'er purring. May as well swap the winter tires and get an oil change too. Fingers crossed.
The #taalgalleria is a nice Camera ''Museum''. (It's where I asked the Hand of my love @ladymyx ). They have a nice collection of WORKING cameras from all ages - Hasselblad, Leica, Fujifilm, Canon, Nikon and much more. A must see for Photography lovers.
My mind. My internal dialogue.
But am I enough
But is it enough
Is my work progressing
Is my work boring
Is my work too similar
Is my work too diverse
Should I focus on just one project
Are my projects too limited
Are my photos too symmetrical
Are my photos too off centered
Are my photos enough
Are my photos good enough
I need to learn more before... I need to do more before...
Have my photos become too polished
My photos are still too rough
A flash would make my photos easier and better
I hate using a flash
A tripod would improve my photos
I hate using a tripod
My street photos are boring
My portraits are boring
My photos are boring
No more boring photos
Social media is a time waster
Photographers who use social media are not serious enough
If it wasn’t for social media no one would see my photos
Need to exhibit to be taken seriously
Exhibitions financially cripple photographers for limited return
I need to publish a book
I’m not ready to publish a book
I should have already published a book
I need to be part of photographers groups
Groups are frustrating
I need to forge my own path
I need to submit to a magazine
I’m not good enough to be in a magazine
Focus on doing a decent magazine submission
Just go out and make some photos
I’ve wasted so much time
Enter that competition
Entering completions is a waste of time and money
Winning competitions makes it worthwhile
You need to shoot film to be better
So tired of the film elitism
Focus on making more money through photography
Don’t sell out
Don’t kill your joy
I know, first world problems. I guess I should be thinking about Christmas presents.
Beard Love! 💙
It's not too late for a roadtrip to check out the Sunflowers.
My friends at Southern Queensland Country (@sqcountry) tell me they are having a late season. The Sunflowers may last till February. So there's still time for a roadtrip in the new year.
More details on my blog. The link is in my bio.
