So...it's been a while since I posted. I guess that's the hazard of having a day job ;)
Confession: I'm often frustrated that I didn't go to art school and become a "real" artist. Or, that I didn't pursue acting when that's all I wanted to do in high school. It's an ongoing dialogue in my head, and the answers vary from year to year.
Lately, I'm realizing that I don't have to travel to far away places, or do anything special to be creative. I can explore where I live and photograph common things in uncommon contexts--like capturing my daughter's glee at washing her hands with the self-drying faucets. Just grabbing my camera in the bathroom and deciding to capture that moment made me crazy happy the rest of the day.
I'd still like to learn how to make documentaries on my iPhone, but at least this is a start.
