I have this ongoing debate with myself whether to post just the bare minimum of pictures:
Just the best ONE.
Just a couple to convey a CONCEPT. And then i think I could post according to a THEME.
I love it when people post like some sort of DIARY and wondered about that too.

I've deleted #2. I don't know yet if that knocks anyone's comments out of sense.

But I always fall back to "I can't bear to restrict myself that much". Nor am i disciplined enough to do a diary and photograph what I do in my day, though to some extent these form my favourite type of entries on Pblog. But the first ones require a lot of restraint and the second requires a lot of discipline.

Luckily i am not troubled by photographing food. Its great that others do it but my one attempt left me cold. You guys all do it better.

I feel I am exploring and just want to put it all out there.

I've been spending some time looking at the work of photojournalists, chatting to them about this and that and listening to some of the issues that concern them currently. Its wonderful to see what these people do. But it does make me realise how limited I am. However, i don't care. I can't afford to. I am not going to be stopped by my limitations. But to find my own style or my own "thing" I think i have to keep on with the scatter approach for a while longer.

It was funny recently when I said something about not having talent, and my dear but infuriating ex boyfriend said, getting it all charmingly arse up, ... "I can't remember who said :" talent without persistence and work , is only a bad mania " Of course the quote is more like "Work and persistence without talent is only a bad mania." Well I tell you what, when people are manic they are happy so if i've only got a bad mania then i don't mind so long as I am happy, cause that's the main thing here.

thisismizb don't think so much, hon! If you are enjoying yourself and this hobby brings you joy, then keep on, keepin' on. :-)

kitegypsy there is no rhyme or reason to my posts... sometimes diary, sometimes 'arty' , sometimes a theme. because i am cheap, i only have five hits... so that limits me. I try to pick 'the best',... but sometimes the most interesting are not very good shots...but that doesnt matter....its just fun...

Riaaa You had me there for a sec - I was thinking you must have had a really good zoom to get that close to the cassowary!
