And I Saw Your Hand With a Loose Grip on a Very Tight Ship

  • Thomas Hawk 9y

    Insuh. I have this obsession that I need to post at least 10 photos every day to Flickr. Not sure why but it's like oxygen for me right now.

    I'll need to keep doing it until I can crack it or figure out where it comes from.

    It forces me to shoot and process every single day. I've got this goal of building a 100,000 photo library of quality images on Flickr over the course of the next 30 years. It will pass of course -- I typically pour myself into things and get super obsessive until I get bored and then I abandon them all together.

    I do enjoy the intensity and the discipline of shooting every day though and feel that it helps to refine my abilities in photography.

    The problem still remains though that basically all I'm doing is technically practicing every day until I can figure out a more important and meaningful way to apply vision and real significance to the lens and camera.

    Still I see myself as a little angel and lately have been trying to figure out what moved and motivated Angelo Rizzuto.

    I think that you underestimate how talented you are.

    I work as an investment advisor. Get's me in to work early and usually done with work early leaving time for shooting evey day. The camera goes with me everywhere, every day. Usually do my processing at night and on the weekends.

    Investment advisor by day, and photographer by night ... what a life! ;o) Your obsession of 10 pictures a day has inspired me!
