Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.

It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary. ~ David Bailey

Not a difficult question to answer this if I just go with the first thought that comes to mind. I hope to become a proper photographer…. I have no technical knowledge but I have a great eye…. I am creative and have been told I capture moments, not just memories. Besides that I’ve been called the queen of self photography more times than I can remember. heheheheh Pure vanity… and believing I capture me better than anyone else can.

I know given training, guidance an opportunity to learn, explore and exhale – I could become a wonderful photographer who may just get ordinary woman to take their kit off and feel goddess like, families to laugh and not just smile at the camera and for sunsets to parade for my pleasure.

There are two things I have done my entire life… write (is a necessity to life, I cannot go without it) and take pictures. Even as a child I had a notebook for writing (I’m talking Victoria’s age...) and a 110 camera where I would set up the shot even if I had no money for the film. Without a camera, I feel like I am missing a limb. 

I may not be the greatest photographer in the world… but I know some of the pictures that I have posted over the decade I’ve had an online persona, have caused shock and horror, enjoyment and delight, tears and laughter…. it evoked emotion and that is all I could ever have asked for… oh and to the paid for the privilege wouldn’t hurt. 🙂

One day when I am big….
