Easter Sunday with family and friends, always a good way to start a day. A friend, which I don’t often see told me today she was amazed at my talent as a photographer. My recent images of India was the subject of her comments. She told me she looks forward to any of my post that contain a photo. She noted that I catch the essence of my subject. I have never thought of myself as an artist, just someone that enjoys taking photos. I read everything I can get my hands on that discusses ways to improve your photography. There are times when I think I read to much and don’t spend enough time taking photos. I now look at everything to see the light and composition as if I was going to take a photo. I now have gotten into the habit of looking at everything from right to left, you would be amazed at how much detail you will see when you do that. I think today is a turning point, less time researching “how to” and more time “doing”. Tomorrow I am going to shoot that water wheel mill that I have driven by dozens of time.
Today, is a turning point!
