Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the essential unreality of the mind.
(Not my words - generated by Artybollocks ... but they fit my world view perfectly, so what the hell - I thought I'd add them!)
Follow your own path; following someone else's path will only lead you to their destination or where they want you to go.
(Those are my words - thought of them the other morning, and it seems appropriate for the photographic journey )
Two photographic thoughts that I'm trying to cement into my head at the moment are (1) "The poor concept, perfectly executed, still makes a poor photograph" (Misha Gordin) and (2) "Technically poor images are like poems written with poor grammar - they may have volumes of insight to convey, but they have difficultly doing it successfully" (Angela Farris Belt). I may have a way to go, but that's what I'm aiming for ...
I am rarely satisfied with anything I produce and always feel it could have been better. I've got the soul of an artist and the post-processing skills of Luddite, although they are slowly improving. More recently, my interests are definitely leaning towards compositing and creating surreal imagery, so my Photoshop book is rarely far from my fingertips and I'm doing my best to learn what I need to in order to produce what I want to.

Brooke Shaden is my current favourite
Way too many to choose just one
No one record over any other, or indeed any genre
Don't think I've got a favourite film
Something that doesn't give me indigestion
Wherever I happen to be at the time
All of them ... including the weeds
All of them ... with a slight fondness for green
My dishwasher - marvellous things, dishwashers!
