The three musketeers…with one of them engrossed in a tactical stance resembling one of my Assault member in XCOM Enemy Unknown.
Ever recall the last conversation your friend had about camera gears with you? It is believed such topic goes in and out of what we call trends, and it seems the buzz seemed to have just came to an abrupt pause, and so it seems…
Sadly, no matter how much we talk about photography, that effort alone will never improve your eyes and deeper appreciation to want and able to capture better images. I guess that’s pretty much applicable to any discipline you set your mind onto. Its of late that I have focused on a new discipline in competitive road cycling and I bring along the same approach to meet a totally different challenge.
But the point in writing hope to paint that plain vanilla simple analogy - that there must be set end goal to every discipline you set your mind onto, in order to excel in that field. The end game for me in photography is to upkeep a real-time (and hopefully interesting for the 400 strong small community in Tumblr and more elsewhere) visual timeline of how interesting a world we are living in, as I travel around the world for both work and play.
If that end game is established for you too, you will naturally establish an almost natural instinct to systematically excel and enjoy the recognition ladder as your work gets known. Getting a Nikon NPS membership is never my end game but a by-product in my pursuit of the above mentioned end game. Neither that over a million Facebook likes (before I switched my domain). That’s a by-product too to me.
So, what’s your end game in photography?
Don’t recall ever taking any interesting pictures in Washington DC, nor New England, and am hoping to pay this region a visit with a domestic deviation from Seattle while there…
But I think its going to be as interesting as my last visit to Europe!
Stay tune…while I clear the backlog of Europe for all to enjoy!
The exterior facade of St Beatus…let’s move on to the next attraction in Switzerland!
According to the guide, the water here is so fresh you can drink it directly without the need to filter them…
The seeds of these plants must have been transported via the water ducts, and survived solely with the help of artificial lightings within the cave.
I spotted these vegetations half a mile into the dark cave!
The companion camera that has complemented me very well as a free and easy image capture tool - Canon EOS M.
