"what was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year"
wow. what didn't i learn.
honestly i think we all learn something new about ourselves every single day.
anyhow. what i learned most, since i'm forcing myself to answer the question, is that if i don't take photos everyday, i get kind of ugly and kind of mean. seriously. photography has become an addiction of mine. the photos don't have to be perfect. and i don't have to take hundreds of them at a time. but my camera has to spend some time in my hands. everyday. kind of like the smoker who's giving up his nicotine but still puts an unlit cigarette in his mouth just for the feeling.
yesterday i took photos of all the little things in my studio that make me smile. just because i needed to shoot. it was too cold and grey to go outside. and then of course there's always sophie. who in the photo above is oblivious to the fact that i'm laying on the floor watching her lick up crumbs while her body soaks in the last rays of the morning sunlight.
so there it is. my name is beth. i have an addiction. i've had it now for 3 years. it's not getting any better. worse actually. but since i know there are so many of you sitting in this round circle with me confessing the same addiction. well welcome. i'm so glad you're here.
