075 | I need to get out more, damn it

It has been quite a while ago since I realized I need to get out to get inspired.

I can’t sit around the house dreaming up photo projects. I can’t expect to feel better about myself and my craft without doing anything substantial. I can’t pretend to work on so called completed projects, when I could be out there making more work. Better work.

Maybe I should plan trips beforehand and don’t expect my tired body to feel excited to go somewhere spontaneous. Maybe I can just pick a place and an afternoon and just go out for once. Maybe I’ll create something good for once. Maybe I’ll feel good about myself again.

That’s it. It’s just me and my camera from now on. Hopefully I can forget about all that other nonsense that’s not taking anywhere.

End of rant.
