The following day I spoke with a colleague of mine. We chatted over Facebook and he shared his thoughts with me about his photography. He said he hadn’t shot anything in almost two months and when I asked why he replied "there's nothing to shoot". I replied to him saying that there is always something to shoot, the question is why are you not shooting. I then told him how I had spent over an hour shooting the above image and why I did it. Taking the shot while finding a creative way to shoot it was my main concern; because it meant something to me. But sometimes along the way, things lose their meaning.
I know all too well how it feels when that happens; to become stagnant. Whenever I’m in this mode, nothing I shoot ever looks right and I begin to ask what’s the use? Then I watch Zack Arias' Transformation video and alllllll is better again, lol…not quite but it usually does help snap me out of my funk. I guess what I’m saying here is that we all go through it sometimes. We all have our moments of doubt and stagnation. But chances are there’s always something around you that if you look closely enough can either bring back memories or represent something meaningful to you. Today, for me, it was an ode to Arizona Iced Tea :).
