I woke up with flowers, a note card and a box of chocolates waiting for me on the kitchen table. The past week of renovations/remodeling has been exciting but also somewhat stressful. I also have an interview for a grad program today. This is Dan’s way of wishing me luck and cheering me up. It is a beautiful reminder to stop and smell the roses.
Since the 52 Weeks Project, I’ve tried to have my camera with me at all times although I haven’t really gone anywhere but the new house. I’m still undecided whether I should opt for 35mm, 50mm primes, zoom, or shoot exclusively with one lens. The color palette, lighting and consistency of the aesthetics of my photographs are what I primarily want to work on. I have 48 more weeks left to work on this. :)
“There is one thing the photography must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough – there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.” – Robert Frank
