Some years ago I made the terrible mistake of listening to other people when they told me to stop griping about business conditions and start selling my photographs instead of consulting.
This turned out to be hard to do .... and still is! Accepting this proposition meant re-thinking what the heck I was doing with my life, anyway.
You should know that photography is my fifth career. Others have included management, organizational development consulting, teaching, and writing. To accept the challenge of becoming a full-time photographer, I had to accept that it wasn't my job to fix the world.
My new job --- and my personal mission -- became "sharing the beautiful in the commonplace."
This blog is about my adventures trying to accomplish that mission. It will incorporate thoughts on a wide variety of topics, links to photographs, and some comments on the aesthetics of photography and maybe some hints along the way.
I'm a life-long learner. So this blogging thing is a learning opportunity for me .... and maybe for you as well.
The picture above was shot yesterday morning, on my way to the studio. Saw the mist, stopped the car, and went to work. It's commonplace, and it's beautiful. Anybody could have taken this picture. But I happened to actually do it. Enjoy!
