JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 10.20.18

JSP Visual Week In Review_102018

It was a good week.

Anytime you can get a photo in a New York Times article, hard to say it was a bad week.

But I also lost out on a job – a wedding shoot, actually – too.

So, life forces all balance themselves out, I guess.

Still, it was a good week. Been pretty busy with work. Too much seat time in front of the computer.

But I had the chance to work on a video shoot and shoot stills this past Wednesday in New York (Hell’s Kitchen, actually. The BEST neighborhood name ever.)

That was fun, and am looking forward to showing some of those.

I’ve also been recollecting where I was nine years ago this week. That trip was pretty amazing (more amazing maybe: I had this blog back then!)

Back then I was talking about having an amazing little one. Now I have three that are quite so big but not quite so little, either. And one of them turns 7 tomorrow.

So, times keeps moving, things keep grooving.

We keep creating.

Let’s get after it.

“Look at the things around you. If you are alive, it will mean something to you, and if you care enough about photography, and if you know how to use it, you will want to photograph that meaningness. If you let other people’s vision get between the world and your own, you will achieve that extremely common and worthless thing, a pictorial photograph.” ~ Paul Strand, who had a birthday this week.
