Never stop playing

This is a mainly visual posting. I got an email recently which contained a quote from Sebastien Michaels:

“How do I become a better photo artist?”
“Create art.”
“Yeah, but how do I get better?”
“Stop overthinking it. Just do it.”
“Do what?”
“Create art.”
“But then what?”
“Create more art.”
“That’s all there is to it?”
“Well … keep learning, obviously.”
“And?”
“That’s it.”
“That’s it?”
“Keep learning. Keep creating.”
“Yeah, but …”
“And have some FUN with it. Whoever has the most fun, wins.”

And I immediately thought, yes, he’s absolutely right. It is far too easy to disappear up our own backsides debating whether what we do is art or otherwise. An artist creates and if we are pondering or pontificating we are not creating. I spend a lot of time reading and then trying out ideas I come across or ideas that have come to me as a result of reading or more importantly looking at other artists work.  So, in the spirit of creating, learning and having fun here are a few images I’ve produced this week.
