Thanks for posting that comment Monty, about how Nikki has reinvigorated your passion for photography
I’ve enjoyed everything you’ve posted so far
It got me browsing through the blog again from start to end, and reminiscing on my own experiences with
It reminded me that I too, was in a rut, until I received that brown box and then everything was in a blur, swept in a whirlwind of shutter clicks, hastily made plans and meticulously laid ones; cancel an appointment here, take the day off there
Thanks for the timely reminder, I feel a second wind coming…
Wonderful to read this Chin. I think photography, unless you're a pro, loses it grip on one's emotions and time every so often. Finding a new source of inspiration is important, in whatever form that takes. For me, the hunt for my next MF lens kept me going for quite some time. But I've bought all the lenses that first intrigued me, as well as quite a few older lenses that Ben introduced me to. I toy with the idea of a new camera, the D600, perhaps, but shopping isn't really working to inspire me at the moment, so I have to find other ways to do that. My Saturday photo shoot with a friend was inspiring. In fact, shooting for friend always gets me going. But I fully expect that Nikki's arrival will propel me to get out and shoot big time. I even have some preliminary plans for where I'll go and what kind of shooting I'll do. It will be something a bit different I expect.
Our lens adventure has given us many gifts, not least, getting to know one another a bit better. We've created a pretty fine community of photographers on this thread and Nikki has definitely played a part in its building.
