These are some of the photos I took at Roundtop Overlook while I was in Endicott, NY. (I actually just got home last night…)
The park was beautiful, and so was the overlook. I’m really starting to get a handle on using Maeko manually. I’m starting to do more of the thinking on my shots instead of letting her do the thinking for me.
I think I succeeded on a few shots at least.

For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.

Henri Cartier-Bresson

I love this quote. To me, photography is just as much an art as traditional sketching is. I am spending a lot of time learning technique, just different techniques than traditional artists. My canvas is my viewfinder.

Sometimes, I have to remind myself that my art is no less worthwhile than any other artistic format.

Hoar frost. It was so foggy this morning that all the trees were covered in it, and it stuck around well into the afternoon. I was so sick yesterday I didn’t get out of bed until this afternoon, and when I went out to walk Antilles, I was treated with this sight. It was enough to get me to grab my camera and do some photographing.

And I think that if you’re passionate about something, and you’re driven and focused, that you can pretty much do anything that you want to do in life.

Dave Grohl

This quote really spoke to me today. Dave Grohl said this on the February 13th episode of the Colbert Report in his interview. He was talking about how he’d never had lessons in the drums or guitar, and he just said this. And I had to stop and think.

I’ve been struggling so hard with my lack of good formal training in photography. And I’ve been feeling like that makes me less of a photographer. Like my lack of formal training somehow diminishes the work that I do.

But I am passionate about photography. And I am certainly driven and focused on what I’m doing. Hearing this just reinforced in me that if I keep working hard and learning everything I can wherever I can, I can make it. I can do this.
