It's difficult...to let go. I'm redoing my website, going through all my photographs and finding that being brutal with myself in terms of what photographs should stay and which should go a rather heart-sore task. The photographs all mean something to me, they all have a history and a story to me no matter how horrible some of them are. For the sake of the new and revised look I have to let some of the sentimentalities go and that's really not an easy task for someone like me who likes to hold onto everything for dear life even if it no longer serves a purpose. It goes hand in hand I guess with the metaphor of an old year almost at it's end and having to physically, psychologically and emotionally make space for the new. It doesn't mean that the old did not exist, it just means I am changing, evolving and growing into something better than I was before, as a person and a photographer. It's still painful to see the old stuff disappear.
How I see it...
I see, speak and write in metaphors because I feel there is much we can learn from nature, people and our surroundings as depicted in my photographs and why I enjoy sharing my thoughts. Not in any attempt to convince or convert you to my way of thinking, seeing or feeling but to share how I see and experience MY mind map of the world. You at no time have to agree, all I ask is that my views and the views of others who wish to express theirs are kindly respected. So relax, get comfy and just enjoy. Happy reading!
