Favorite photos and a promise to myself-

I've been spending a bit more time day to day taking pictures of random things. I realized that I rarely shoot for fun anymore, only getting behind the camera for a purpose. This is my attempt to get the playfulness back into my photography.

My resistance to shooting casually, in part, has been a reaction to the inundation of photography. I was frustrated with a camera (or iphone) taking every moment hostage. I'd be gazing at the waves crashing over the Malec√≥n at sunset in Cuba only to be jarred back to reality by hearing the whirrs of flashes and clicks of shutters or enjoying a wonderful dinner here at home with a friend only to have him/her fumble for an iphone as if posting a photo validated a good time. 

I still believe there is a time and place for a picture, or rather a time and place not to take a picture, but this is the world we live in and we need to constantly adjust and adapt. I choose to experience every moment in the tangible world, but I will bring the lens back to my eye and every month share some of my favorites. 

(I wrote an article on this topic a while back, "Knowing What it Means to be Photographed" for Fuel you Photography)

These are my perceptions of the world around me:

orchid, backlit, drapes, blinds, lines, graphic,
