Do you look at an image sometime after the initial capture and ask who took it. You know it was you, however there is something about it that is fresh, that surprises you.
A quote by the late great martial arts master Bruce Lee;
“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”
This new image, have I moved from a plateau onto another level. A step into a new level of seeing, of being, of skill, of understanding and clarity.
The image above is a new level for me, not only that it is colour, it has something about it that excites me. Is it I have finally got to grips with my camera or myself, time will tell, I only know in myself I feel I have reached a new level. First image in a while I have wanted to print.
Over the last few months I have felt a rise in my understanding. I am producing images that excite me, that challenge my skill.
