I am embarrassed to say that I really have not picked up my Nikons since I finished my last semester of photography classes at CVCC.
But I still see, even without a camera in my mind. I am still a photographer and eventually a camera will find its way back in my hands.
“But there is another kind of seeing that involves a letting go. When I see this way I sway transfixed and emptied. The difference between the two ways of seeing is the difference between walking with and without a camera. When I walk with a camera I walk from shot to shot, reading the light on a calibrated meter. When I walk without a camera, my own shutter opens, and the moment’s light prints on my own silver gut. When I see this second way I am above all an unscrupulous observer.”

The door is still open.
Until later …
