On location - Month 1

Today I spent the afternoon with my photography friends working on material for an exhibit we're planning to show next November. We will be meeting once a month as a group to encourage each other to get out and create. The theme is yet undecided but I'm hoping that as things progress it will develop on it's own.

It's so nice to have a purpose to my work again. Even if I don't get a single shot from the day, I'm happy to have made the effort. Sometimes I have to convince myself to leave the house. Convince myself that I have a smidgeon of talent and that I can pull it off. I suppose all "artists" feel this way at times and it's this exact insecurity that drives them to always do better - to push the boundaries of their art. For me it's enough right now. 

On a side note, I brought out my 4 lens Lomo. I shot 24 frames using expired film that my dad bought me a few years ago. It's been sitting in my fridge just begging to be used and I couldn't think of a better way to crack it open. I'm also enjoying the excitement of the unknown. It's been so long since I've worked with film and I'm not used to having to wait to see the fruits of my labour. Once they are developed I will post - good or bad - I promise.
