Slowing Down

March 04, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I recently expanded my circles on Google+ to include thousands of recommended photographers. The stream of images and ideas is astounding. I could sit here all day just looking at what others do and commenting. I also set up a Pinterest account, although I am not particularly active over there yet. For one thing, Pinterest behaves poorly. It either ignores my pins or multiplies them so I have to keep going in and deleting.

These tools and Facebook are ripe with opportunity. And yet, I can't help but feel they are also distractions. I love intereacting with other photographers and seeing their work. But I don't want to do that at the expense of shooting pictures! Just like the PhotoShop tutorials I have on my computer - they are tools that I want to utilize periodically.

So, yesterday when my snowdrops were finally open, I was relieved to be away from the computer and behind the lens. My wish for everyone is to have quiet moments when something as simple as a blooming snowdrop can take you away from all distractions.
