Split view on life. There is what’s real, what is happening right outside our window, and there is also what we imagine, what isn’t as it seems. Many focus only on the make-believe. That is bad when it comes to politics; but can be interesting when it comes to photography since it gives us a chance to be creative while entertaining ourselves.
I take pictures for the folks here at Homewood at Plum Creek. Those pictures need to be accurate renditions of how things are, depictions of reality. For my personal photography, I often like to do otherwise. I prefer to show things as I see them, or as what they can be as Minor White would say. The problem is, “it isn’t easy”. It still requires me to go out and about and look for ideas, and there are too many reasons not to go out, especially this time of the year.
