sorry i didn't get back earlier.
i've been thinking about mikeg's question and felt really stumped, like you do when you're just not interested.
but i took some pictures today and feel inspired again so that's okay :)
i think, if i was in an ideal world i'd be being commissioned to do projects on anything...whether it was social care or farming or pretty much anything.
something that had a purpose to it, maybe where i had to do research, i don't know.
i'm not in a position to do that yet, kids still at home etc, but maybe one day.
for now i need to learn how to get more consistent results, it still all feels so much luck...i bought some expired film from a professional today, he showed me some of his 4x5 transparencies and they were perfect, not necessarily my kinda thing but the skill level was really high, i'd like that :)
and thank you all, you gave me some much needed cheering on.
