stuff... and inspiration

I always feel guilty wishing for more stuff, because I have so much stuff and there are so many who don't even have the necessities, let alone stuff. And to be honest, the word wishing is not accurate; I'll save my wishes for more important things.

All that said, I have received and will receive some nice stuff. What does all this have to do with photography? Two books... that I hope will bring me inspiration: "American Ruins" by Arthur Drooker and "On This Earth" by Nick Brandt.

"The fact is that relatively few photographers ever master their medium. Instead they allow the medium to master them and go on an endless squirrel cage chase from new lens to new paper to new developer to new gadget, never staying with one piece of equipment long enough to learn its full capacities, becoming lost in a maze of technical information that is of little or no use since they don't know what to do with it." - Edward Weston

sway with me

photographs tell a story
the story can be in the details..
the time, the place, the light
you leave a trail by the images you capture.

night shapes

'tis the season
making lists
making plans
can you wait another week before shooting a Christmas ornament?
