To Task

I took a very talented and good friend to task tonight with the help of a very talented and good friend who could also be taken to task.

As could I - any time, bring it on...

I just want my talented and good friend to shoot more. To just shoot. More. Volume yields results.

Shed the mental conflicts and press the fucking button.

And I told him this too - as I talk to you, I am talking to myself.

Everybody needs people who care about them. Who care about their purpose, and in my field, their work.

Work is important, it should obviously be self-defining, but sometimes it's too self-defining, and that inhibits.

What are we gonna do next?

We'll see.


This is a photograph I took not so long ago with Sanders McNew's Rolleiflex.

It is not self-defining at this point, although it probably was at the time.

Either way, I am not scared of showing it here.

I wish I had friends that cared that much.

I don't get an image when I read your post - only a skinny box - when clicked on gives me a blank page that says rolei01resm.jpg.
