This eye, its twin and their partner, the brain

    Newer Older

    sometimes it frustrates me to see that what these find interesting and beautiful, seems to be dismissed by other people's respective organs, whereas what I am hesitant to post, gets applause. sometimes I want to give up the option to see view count and comments

    there is no match, ever :( update: that is not a problem though. where people fail my expectations (my failure, really), music helps

      it happens to everyone.

      yesterday for example my favourite photo was "family at mike's pastry"

      almost no one else thought so.
      and that is just fine!! :-)

      for the record, I liked that photo of yours enough to know which one it was, just from you mentioning the title :)

      yeah. your eye is egyszeri és megismételhetetlen. as is your brain.

      yeee I'm totally lazy to think of English words that don't come to my mind at once. :P

      This happens to me all the're not alone.
      But watching as the hits and comments count up on your latest photos can be really addictive!

      Often my best, and most time consuming compositions get almost no hits, while something I took totally last minute....or worse still...a crappy picture taken with my iPhone gets hundreds of hits.

      Life isnt fair, but try not to get it down.

      You should also not try to take pictures from the point of view of what people will like on flickr and follow your own path.

      (...I try to, mostly!)

      you're right. all-round popularity is just an illusion anyway. and thankfully those days are long gone when my own path was under constant scrutiny and bluntly criticised. i should already be able to take it with due confidence and peace.
