Striving

As a photographer, there is always another level to aim for. Either purely technological or creative. Lately, I have been feeling the second.

It's the urge to do something more, to accomplish something. It's a feeling so strong that I can almost reach out and grab it. Not even a feeling, more like something I can feel growing inside of myself. It is a strange feeling, that is pulling me forward in strange directions. It's frightening at times.

I know approximately where I am, and I know very well what kind of images I have in my head, and roughly how far I still need to go to make them. But the distance I still need to travel, in terms of personal growth and technical knowledge, is not insignificant. And that distance is frightening. I want to be able to make something great. To accomplish something. But I don't know if can, or if I will have the time to. I feel an urgency, yet I know that some things have to be given the time it takes.

How long until I fall?

Lately

So what have I been up to? What photography-interested people usually do, lots of pictures. I would love to go through every single one, but that would take a while more than I have.

Instead, let me show you one.
