We’ve each had our periods of just trying to keep up, periods of stillness when there seems to be no progress and periods of being tossed about where staying afloat is in itself a victory. We are all flesh, blood and bone. We all need food to eat, water to drink and a place to rest. We each feel a huge range of emotions and each of us pursues those things we value.
This becomes apparent with a shared interest such as photography among a group of like-minded blog friends. The Internet has made it possible to experience and share commonality with friends around the world — geographical and political boundaries don’t apply.
Can you imagine what it was like 50-60 years ago to be a photographer. You’d for the most part be on your own with only limited opportunities to share viewpoints and experiences — limited equipment, limited books and instructional material. Would that be better or worst?
