So I've been kicking about for a wile on here, mostly unnoticed which doesn't really bother me all that much because some of you may be aware that I'm a terrible introvert and wile I don't have an issue with being lost in a massive crowd, if the crowds attention is focused on me I tend to fall to pieces and turn into a stammering idiot. I always try to be rather inconspicuous at social gatherings and hide, which is quite a feat and almost impossible for someone 6ft tall and strikingly unusual looking such as myself. I look nothing like a photographer of any sort type or description, I'm fairly sure I don't look particularly bright either as people tend to immediately assume I'm about as intelligent as a brick, which can be rather useful in some situations... but that's another story for another time. Anyhow back to topic so that this doesn't end up as the tragic tale of a weird, extra tall and sort of funny looking girl. What concerns me to date is the possibility of running out of endless wonder so to speak, I'm so honored that people are adding me to their watch list, and I love all your comments that your loving my photography but I've developed this inane fear that I'll be unable to keep raising the bar. I've had such an amazing year photographically and almost everything has gone right for me. I've worked super hard to push my skills to the ceiling then smash a hole in the ceiling. I've been chased by rampaging cows, slept on the freezing ground waiting for the light to be just so, been stranded on a mountain top without a torch, gotten heat stroke, fallen in the mud, fallen on my butt in the mud, done my back in and scratched and skinned myself all over but every second of the pain discomfort and annoyance was worth it and if given a choice I wouldn't change a single moment of it, because it made me grow as a person and because some of the worst days out in the field yielded the most outstanding photos I've ever shot, those moments of pure chance and utter perfection that are the rewards for pouring your heart and soul into something your passionate about. It also really honed my skills and proficiency with my camera, it's more like an extension of myself now rather than an inanimate soulless thing I use to simply take pictures with and I've finally gotten to a point where I finally feel I understand light and how to capture it and make it work for me. I want to be able to keep the bar that high always and forever as a reward to you my fans. You, who lend me your kind words and admiration an a regular basis and give me something to smile about on those days when things get me down, so I certainly hope I can live up to all the super high expectations you have of me, I will never stop trying to improve, not because I wish be be, or even think I am better than anyone else, but simply because I wish to be better than the person I was yesterday.
