I’ve been a little stressed the past few days playing the waiting game, but last night someone made everything ok. His name is Bill Cunningham. This movie is a must see for all photographers, and I’m pretty sure everyone else would be entertained by it as well. It was so refreshing to watch someone enjoying their work that much, so content with what they’re doing, focused on the big picture rather than the small one (no pun intended). The list of inspirational messages the film left me with is too long to get into, so just see it. For anyone who’s ever felt ungrateful for this gift we as photographers have been given…and I mean, who are we kidding, we’re all ungrateful sometimes…this film will help remind you.
Before the movies, I went to a yoga class where my teacher ended the class by saying something along the lines of, “Have gratitude for the things we do not already know and what will be revealed to us in the future.” So, that’s what I’m trying to do. Today I spent the day shooting for an upcoming show. I pulled out some T-MAX 400 from the fridge and got my B&W on. I always shoot color, so I figured let me try something I’m not so sure about. I had fun. Thanks, Mr. Cunningham.
