JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 06.05.21

I feel like I’m a journalist from 20 years ago, on deadline, trying to get it in under the wire.

10 minutes to do till midnight.

I’m tired.

My neck is sunburned from being at three baseball games in 90+ degree heat this weekend.

And I love it.

I’m on the hook to do a few things for the day job, and on the hook for a few things in the personal life.

Juggling plates, kittens and chainsaws.

Makes life interesting.

And tiring.

Sleep is overrated. But still needed.

Lots going on, but wanted to sneak in this post.

JSP Visual Week In Review Lite, I guess.

Spent some time in Pennsylvania this week, put lots of miles on Beaford The 4Runner this week. Good to go home to Pa, good to come back to NJ.

Rain and heat and humidity this week in both.

Not a lot of shooting this week, more visual documentation than anything else.

But that works, too, right?

Keep the eye sharp.

Document who we are, what we see, what we do, where we do.

It’s not so bad.

Oh, hey, top of the month. Back up that work from May.

Make prints.

Be kind.

One thought on “JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 06.05.21

  1. “Document who we are, what we see, what we do, where we do.” This is one theme that too many equate to snapshots and, thus, not real photography. Done well, it is challenging and produces wonderful images and captures great memories. What is the background? Should I be shooting higher or lower. Can I get the peak action moment? What should I include in the image to help tell a story. Or exclude. While some may not see these images as art, they can evoke a greater emotion in the viewer than the still life art that one spent hours getting just right. And a series of these ‘documentation’ images can tell a powerful story that overcome technical imperfections.

    I confess that I don’t make as many of these photos as I should. You’ve unknowingly challenged me to step up my game to capture those special moments and make prints..
