Trying to photograph is like trying to love

Favorite quote from the day:

Trying to photograph is loving.

It’s a spontaneous thing and the moment effort starts going into it then all of a sudden your starting to get shackled.  Your shackled with your mind, your history, your should’s – ‘I can do it better’, and your judgements.

So the trying part is showing up – that’s the discipline – to show up.
