“I don’t wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work.” – Pearl Buck

  1. This is so true! I had gotten out of the habit of carrying my camera with me everywhere and it really took some conscious effort to get back into it. It’s been so worth it! That also goes for my decision to share my images on the internet…I kept waiting and waiting and one day you realize there is no such thing as “the perfect time.” You just have to step out of your comfort zone and do it!

    1. Hi Stacy – yes you are totally right, and I try and always have a camera with me, which isn’t too difficult these days with camera phones, etc. In fact, you don’t have to have a DSLR – often I make pictures with my iPhone for reference or inspiration – the important thing is that you’re practicing “seeing”. thanks for the feedback.
