“Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made. “~W Dyer
I asked these young friends to line up so I could shoot their boots. They were obviously quite proud of them and had dressed up alike for their big day in the small town. It was quite cute. I happen to have a thing for cowboy boots and have a few pairs myself…brown, black, pale pink and my favorite, teal. Who said you have to choose just one color?
And the big choices in life? They are subject to change but you are wiser to try to make a good choice initially. You can’t change some things as easily as you can change your boots.
I have made a little decision in regard to the blog and have decided to turn off likes. While I appreciate the thought and the visits and welcome any comments, at this point I just want to give my images life without having them evaluated via a “like” system. I always find the comments I receive meaningful and do truly appreciate the fact that people will give my images a closer look. One can cultivate likes but I rather just free myself of quantifying my images. Is an image (or poem or essay, etc.) much better than another because it receives 100s of likes? And on the other hand, is an image that receives 2 likes a poor one? I think not. For me personally I just find it more liberating artistically not to use a system like that for a blog. But thank you all for your support, previous likes, comments and views. Take note that they did not go unappreciated!
