As a photographer, it is hard not to feel both energized and overwhelmed when everything around you is good. The weather is perfect, there is a refrigerator full of film not ten from from where I am typing this, I have time on my hands, and there isn't a single resource I need that I couldn't get if I wanted to.
These are all wonderful things and in one way or another, we are all in this position whether we know it or not (or simply choose to recognize it). The challenge then becomes to focus and manifest all of that good energy into art that I feel proud of making. It's a challenge I am truly happy to have in front of me.
