i have been trying to approach things differently. i feel as if the way i see something and subsequently photograph it has become predictable. maybe that is what personal style is but to me that feels redundant. i need to keep evolving. . . the question of how to do that is the tricky part. the easiest answer is to keep shooting and then shoot some more. i think that we see things in the world that are difficult to translate or render photographically. i wonder why this is. . . why do i see something in the world and take a picture of it and the essence of what i saw is gone. as an exercise i am going to start asking myself not what is right about an image but what is wrong with it. maybe this will lead to better images. so. . . here are a few brand new ones. . . i wonder what is wrong with these.
