I’m always thinking about my work. It’s difficult for me to define. Yes, I take a lot of photos of water. I’m drawn to it. I like to think we work well together. Ebb and flow of sorts. So does that define my work or me? I don’t know. I think mostly when I set out to make a photo I look for something simple. Something that speaks to me, the elements speak to me. It’s not about the sunsets and sunrises, however beautiful they are. The elements…to me the elements define nature herself. Maybe that is natures way to make things simple.
I was reading an inspiration post from Ian Plante over on his dreamscapes blog about defining his work and this got me thinking. He’s right, it’s not about the Facebook likes, or the Google Plus one’s or Twitter’s retweets. Sure those things are nice but those things don’t define your work. I think when I’m out creating work, I’m looking to deliver the simple beauty of the location I am in. I hope you will find the simple beauty in nature. I don’t know if that’s what defines my work. But it’s the message I’m trying to deliver. Simplicity in our not so simple world.
