The revisiting part is a killer for me. It prevented me to not watch this gallery for some years because a part of me (my critical mind) considered that I was no good and it was a waste of time. Not to mention I refused myself the simple joy of making photos for a long time. Revisit your work as often as you feel but don't do the same mistake I did, don't put yourself down. It is OK to have bad photos that no one gets and it is good to have a portfolio that you feel close too.


I am reading a book right now about self-compassion and I am in the process of apologizing to myself that I in the past was so hard to judge, reject and feel ashamed about the things I love. I can only say the same to you. :sun:

Thank you, my friend! :manhug: This lens is indeed a fairytale on its own.

In Between Dreams

Regarding joy I was at a workshop yesterday about street photography. I would like to explore that more than I do now with my phone. (If you have instagram then you can see some of the things I do over there as well: https://www.instagram.com/alexandru1988/ )


And during the session the trainer had some very interesting comments, one of them being that he cannot take photos when he is happy. He just is happy. I paused and thought about it a bit. I realized that I am the same as well sometimes, I tend to watch more when I am happy rather than take photos. I will try to experiment changing that and enjoying the moment more in my shots.


Hopefully some good macros will come out of this :giggle:

Crossing Borders

Thank you :hug:I am glad you liked this little experiment. Macro takes a lot of patience and I have not tried this since a very long time, I admit. I will try it more in the future.

Crossing Borders

:manhug: I think most people will relate. Thank you, my friend.
