I’ve lived in the city for a while now. Well, technically, I live on the outskirts of the city, but still in the city. I’ve come to realize that I’m not at all a city girl, but I’ve always thought that this would be an opportunity to get some amazing shots. I mean after all the city is supposed to have so much to offer.
As mentioned, I don’t really like the city and the only thing that I hate worse than the city…well, it is city traffic. So, even though I’ve always suspected I’d could get some amazing shots…I’ve never actually made it downtown for that reason.
Saturday, I decided to finally do it. A friend of mine is opening a salon booth in a pretty high-end salon and wanted to promote my photography. She put me in charge of “choosing” which ones to display. I’m a country girl…she’s very much a city girl…um, so yeah. I decided to try to get some shots that I thought would fit in with her style. Some city shots.
During my endeavor I was getting discouraged, because nothing was wowing me. I had all these visions for things I had seen, but nothing was working out the way that I wanted. I began to realize that it wasn’t that there was nothing to photograph or that I wasn’t getting some “good” shots. The problem was….I didn’t have the passion or any real connection with what I was trying to shoot. Think that I missed that memo somewhere along the line…now I know.
