My Best Photo 2010

2009.12.17

This was the first time that I thought I had actually captured what I saw in my mind's eye with respect to black & white. (I had only just begun shooting in black and white, so the 'mono-vision' was still developing.)

Somewhere on a post recently someone mentioned a book, The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz.
I have this book, although I'm not by any means a religious person. There was a great deal of value in it for me. The four agreements are basically this:

Be impeccable with your word
Don't take anything personally
Don't make assumptions
Always do your best


My hope is to do better at these four things.

ASINUS Hello Marjorie, still was failing myself to come to see your best photo. It is good, now only you lacking open the picture.

I do very few photos in B*W, but I admire very much the photographers who do them. I recommend to you to visit a friend that I found in photoblog, before he was getting angry and was changing to flickr! It is really good in B*W. When i will be major, I want to do photos as theirs.

Regards. Enric
