This is where you will find a picture I post daily--or almost daily. When life gets stressful or I feeling drained of creative energy, my personal rules for posting say I can take a break. No one will punish me for not doing this daily and it does not mean I have failed. I try to post something new each time I post here. It is hard to shoot daily, so I am satisfied with posting something I took that week or even that month. Occasionally, I pull something from the archives. I began posting here in October 2009. I felt I needed to push myself to take pictures more often and to hone my skills. I believe I am better today than I was over two-years ago. I still consider myself to be a student and hobbyist, because I have yet to earn money with my photography. By the end of this year, however, I will be a professional photographer. That is my #1 goal for 2012.
El Jay reflecting.
What I like most about this image is the wavy lines and his pensive expression--I think he was building up saliva in preparation of spitting (see pix in the link.)
Not sure how I feel about this one.... To see the original and other processing options, go here: http://indigostudios.smugmug.com/Albuquerque/Tingley-Beach-2012/20880048_9JrPqn#1657935997_ggT6MLz
I like what both Ayushthetraveler and Dickdonkin say. I agree it has a dream like quality--yes, I've seen it used in film... and next year, when I am working on a Best of 2012 book, I will consider this for the cover. It certainly has a soft look, space for text, and other qualities that would make it a great cover.
