Weekly Photo Challenge--Self-Portrait: A Thin Slant of Light
Been busy with many other things, finishing course work for the PhD program, now studying for qualifying exams. Still, my time behind the camera has fostered a creative outlet that has helped to keep me sane. A friend and photographer E. Renard recently posted a quote online that I found myself agreeing with whole-heartedly: "If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it's as though I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up." --Richard Avedon. In spite of my intense focus on completing my PhD, I find this to be true and the camera is teaching me how to see differently, to see newly, to continue finding the sixpence all around me.
