Day 153/365 - Ubuhle

Suivez moi sur facebook www.facebook.com/pages/Olivier-Borgognon-Photography/1413...

 

153 days already. A challenge, a new approach to long term commitment to something i am passionate about.

 

How should we approach developing our skills? Should I blog on flickr or just post minimal text, should i write in french and english, be personal or not, express my feelings or not ? All these questions, these thoughts, who am I, where do I position myself, what do I feel, what do i want to share to the world and is it a good idea to do so ?

 

reality is within us, we might be living on the stage of life, actors of our own destiny, but being ourselves is part of our evolution.

 

I enjoyed writing, and was keeping myself from doing it, from writing my feelings, emotions, or whatever could go with the photography... what for ? to do like the others... what for ? well I would guess for nothing... I AM NOT like the others, that being said, nobody is alike and we should all be cultivating our differences, extracting our essence to fuel our life.

 

I might be boring some, others might not like what I do, who I am, how i do things. Great for them... I will pursue, learn from others certainly, but not modify my way of life simply to be in "the good books" of this monocultural existence with no taste.

 

Tonight i'm flowing through that 365 project with various items, concerts, self-portraits, some with friends, outdoors, product shots, some creative, some less... but i'm still pushing and feel that I am growing at my pace. That in itself is an achievement, and I hope many other flickr members i follow and who follow me will get that message through... whatever you do, whoever you are with... learn to be yourself and stay that way.

 

Thank you And enjoy this Ubuhle Be africa concert, emotion from behind and details of another world.
