There’s a certain danger in taking up a hobby as a steady commitment – the excitement that comes with experimenting gets suppressed by a drive to find perfection, or something decent enough to share.

When I took a photography class last semester, our professor encouraged us to value the process, not the product. He made an effort to push us away from the mentality of always thinking ahead, of taking steps only if we knew our destination.

These photos were taken earlier this year, but looking at them reminded me of the values that I pulled from the class and how applicable they are to a variety of contexts.

Have a great weekend!

    Once upon a very long time ago, I took a community ed. photog class. (It was so long ago we learned to print and develop B&W images. Great fun.)

    The significant thing the teacher said was that once you consider yourself a photographer, you no longer need to apologize for taking pictures.

    Enjoy and embrace, good, young friend.
