The balance of work and play is becoming increasingly important - probably due to the age factor. My men are fairly self sufficient and the extra time I allow for myself is quite enjoyable. Recharges my batteries so to speak.
Going through images a while after they've been made allows me to see things in a slightly different light than when I edit promptly on the spot. I love going out on editorial assignments and trying to "wrangle" a photograph from the experience. No preconceived notions other than lens choice - letting the event or situation bring a photo to life.
Photographs make me smile. Whether they are taken by friends or strangers
new or old - color or black and white.
I like to see how other folks see. What they present to the world.
I hope the photographs I put out into the world do the same for you.
So as Summer winds down only a small part of me will miss it. Fall will come quickly on it's heels and bring with it an entirely different view of our world. I can happily say that I'm ready for the change.
Time to move on - time to gear up - time to make pictures
Looking forward to the next season.
