I'm going though old photographs. Making space on my hard drive, trying to decide if I even need to keep most of these photographs.
and it leaves me wondering why I take pictures. Most of them aren't spectacular. A handful are to remember times. Birthdays, Christmas, family trips, shows I've been to...but other than a few to remember...why bother??
To get better?
Am I photographer? An artist?
I think I am. If only because I enjoy the act of a camera in front of my face. The anticipation. The joy. Of getting that ONE great shot, out of 100 taken.
I'm an amateur. I don't take photos for money, or even to show. I do it because I enjoy the moment of seeing.
I enjoy the moment of seeing.
Enjoy the moment.
Lets see if I can transcend the camera and enjoy the moment.
Along the way I'll make a record of my seeings. This is what this Blog is about.
A record of my seeings.
Thanks for seeing with me.
