I was Mentally Spent

And after a couple of hours, I was mentally spent! There is only so much I can do and then my mind says no more when it comes to finding subjects in the macro world. I know better then to keep pushing myself because that’s when the delete button becomes your best friend. So I went outside, sat down and watched the light change. That’s when I saw these really simple clicks.

I’m probably funny in that way, but I just don’t see going nuts for a photo when it’s going to suck. Oh yeah, I can take suckie photographs with the best of them but I really try to avoid it. I realized long ago that my suckie images come from pushing the photograph, this kind of guilt that since I’m out and have a camera in my hand I should be shooting when, there really is nothing showing me any love at that moment. When this happens, I’ve found that if I just sit down, watch life go by for fifteen or twenty minutes that the mind will clear out, the light changes enough for new treasures to be found and creativity comes back to my mind. I have a large collection of window photos. I have no freakin clue what I will ever do with them all, I rarely is ever share them so I thought I would this time just because.
