One year ago I started this project to reconnect with photography. In the beginning, my goal was to post weekly, while staying focused on photography (rather than the equipment). While there have been distractions, the marathon of shooting regularly for a year has helped me to build skills, build confidence and has helped me begin to see my creative direction. For this next year I plan to continue posting weekly, while honing my skills and learning to see creatively.
I am always interested to see where other people work, but I do not usually think to take pictures of my own work place. These spaces are not were I spend most of my time, but I have spent enough time here that it sticks out in my mind.
It has been a very busy few weeks for me, not leaving a lot of time for photography, or at least not as much as I would like. This week in particular I have felt like I am in a creative vacuum. This is my eighth week on the “lines” theme, and I am starting to feel it. Of course that was the whole point, to shoot something so much that I am forced to see it in a different way.
So it comes down to making time. It isn’t anything new or earth shattering, and I have written about it here several times already, but it is a lesson I keep learning time and again. Make time, even if it is only for a few photos. Make time to look at what is around you, and you see differently.
