I like shooting pictures. Landscapes, animals, people, street, flowers, you name it. Digital, film, pinhole, polaroid.
I like you, who take the time to submit a comment on one of my shots.
I like you, who post cool photographs, beautiful art. You are nice!
In my mind respect is something one earns.
Not something one demands.
And the best way of getting respect? Showing it to others. Quite simple.
Consensus leads to medioricity. Some cool dude said. I like that. Why? Because it ultimately means that I should take pictures for myself. Not for others. I should seek MY look, express MY thoughs and emotions. THAT is the road to creating art. Not that I ever will reach that level of photography though...
