I would be honored if you would take the time to look at some of my other work: Here are some of my best in a SLIDESHOW Or, for a quick glance, try the thumbnails of some great pics of mine. I guarantee you won't be disappointed - or your money back !!
I'm re-evaluating the amount of time I spend on flickr, and HOW I spend it.
Flickr is starting to feel like a "burden" rather than a "joy" at times. . My fault, not flickr's. Let's just say that I've been seduced by the "dark side" of the flickr-force (within me).
I'd like to get back to the care-free, fun days when flickr was a place I went to share, find encouragement, and get inspiration.
Because of who I am, or can be, I'm finding myself becoming mercenary, overwhelmed, competetive, disillusioned, and other undesirable things at flickr.
I've also found that my standards and expectations for my own photography have gone up dramatically. In some ways, this is positive, in that it helps me to be more selective and critical of my own work. At the same time, more and more of my photographs look sub-standard to me. It is a strange dichotomy: one that can lead both to a finer, more excellent product, and at the same time, one that makes more and more of my photographs just plain "blah" and commonplace. Maybe it's just part of what being around "excellence" is like. Yet it has effects that lead to both greater achievement and to disenchantment in my own photography.
When I grapple with the world outside, I'm really grappling with MYSELF. Wish me fortitude, clear thinking, and balance. . .
