Shy To The Light

I don’t have a lot of grand things to say with this post. No interesting stories or amazing events. No grand revelations or moments of inspiration. Sometimes being a photographer doesn’t include any of those things. Sometimes its only a girl who comes by, takes off her clothes, stands next to a window, and I snap the shutter a few times. We made small talk, I made her laugh a few times, we did our business and then she went on her way. Sometimes that is simply all it is.

But you know what? I’m just fine with that. I don’t need it to be anything bigger. Reality is better than fantasy. Fantasy only lets you down and leaves you disappointed. Fantasy by its very definition is not real. I’d rather work with something real. I am perfectly content letting the audience invent the fantasy if they want to.
