2016-04-24 Liberty Station

I had nothing to do this afternoon (ok I could have cleaned, organized, taken things out of boxes that I should have taken out of boxes 6 months ago, details details), so I decided I would go check out Liberty Market in Liberty Station. I could walk a little, take some pictures, and check the place out. When I get to Liberty Station, it is a beautiful day out, I find parking, and walk to Liberty Market where I find a mass of people standing around packed in like sardines looking for some cool foodie experience. I took a photo and left to walk to the other side of Liberty Station to a sushi place that is ok. BUT I got a little extra walking in, so I guess that is ok.

2016-04-19 Let's try this again

This is the beginning of a new daily photo journey.

I have been very "meh" about photography lately. I have felt like I have been doing a lot of things other people wanted, and very little that I have wanted to do. And then the few times I tried to do something that I wanted to do, I somehow made that into something that I wasn't super into by not pushing myself and not getting the most out of the shoot. Let's say I was shooting with a model, I would kind of let them lead and not really direct. So I would put all this time and effort into something and when I was done my reaction would be "eh..." This is no one's fault but my own.

So, how to change this. Well I am going to spend more time and effort on shooting what I want. And more importantly, more time just playing with my cameras. This, a 28th attempt at a daily photo blog, is an attempt to maybe force myself into the playing. Momentum is a big thing with me, I got used to NOT having my camera on me all the time. So, now I am trying to get used to always having it with me, again.
