i wish people disappeared

"The important decisions in photography are those concerned with the image itself: the reasons for taking it, & the way it looks. The Technology, of course, is vital, but the best it can do is to help realize ideas & perception."
- Michael Freeman - The Photographers Eye http://michaelfreemanphoto.com/


. . . you are LOVED, all is well!

There is a big mix out there, & there's lots of different things going on, & there is not one way that was intended to be the right way. Just like there's not one color or one flower or one vegetable or one fingerprint. There is not one that is to be the right one over all others. The variety is what fosters the creativity. & so you say, "Okay, I accept that there's lots of variety, but I don't like to eat cucumbers." Don't eat cucumbers. But don't ask them to be eliminated & don't condemn those who eat them. Don't stand on corners waving signs trying to outlaw the things that you don't like. Don't ruin your life by pushing against. Instead, say, "I choose this instead. This does please me." -
