So I haven’t posted in over a month. Just haven’t felt the urge. In trying to figure out why, I landed on a couple ideas. Between FB, Instagram, and texting…everyone’s a photographer these days and everyone’s sharing everything. Some of it’s boring…some of it’s over-share…some of it seeks validation…other stuff humble-brags…and so on and so on. The question is, “Does any of it enrich us?” I think the answer is yes.
I mainly follow skiers landscape photographers on instagram and I’m amazed at some of the photos I see; they inspire me. Those feeds are keepers. I unfollow the ones that seem to be manufactured, excessively posed, or are marketing ploys. You know what I’m talking about. In any case, I think a good photo talks for itself. It doesn’t need some lame inspirational quote, or some hipster chick in a round-brimmed hat to make it valid.
I don’t want to just throw shit out there for the sake of it. Ideally, I’d like my photos and experiences to inspire and entertain….and ultimately help people realize that there’s beauty all around us… which is wise to stop and take notice of.
I’ve had moments over the last month that made me smile on the inside. During a few of them, I managed to grab my little point & shoot…..
…and I’d like to share them.
