life : change is in the air
Wipe it clean and start a new.
Hi Everyone -
As we know, spring is the season of rebirth and this first week has me doing some serious soul-searching. Seeing the new growth, while my in-laws go through the challenges of aging, and the terrible accident that took the life of Natasha Richardson has really gotten to me. Life is fragile and not to be taken for granted. Yet, I often do.
Aimee’s wonderful post yesterday has me thinking about change and the choices I’ve made over the years. Most of them are good ones and usually work out pretty well. But, I often get comfortable and avoid the risk associated with making a make a drastic change. It's strange because I’ve had no problem working on some risky start-up businesses for others.
Since we started the blog almost a year ago, I've really learned to love photography and I’m absolutely sure I would not have discovered it beyond simple snapshots without meeting & visiting all of you. Of all my creative pursuits, it has given me the most satisfaction. It gets me up out of bed at the crack of dawn.
I realize there are many, many talented photographers out there with years of training, but I wonder if I should focus on it a little bit more intensely with real goals? Go for it and stop hiding behind 'I’m just learning' and using the abundance of talent as excuse not to take it more seriously.
We'll see, but I'm fairly certain change is on the horizon.
PS I should clarify that the photos to come are from Williamsburg, Brooklyn and they'll be diptychs - something new!
