Sometimes it’s about making the work fun. I need to shoot more stock so that’s been something I’ve been going about in my own inimitable way.

Making your stock photography interesting is a necessity with all the competition out there today. At times you will be more successful than at others.

Suppose I had decided on a project. Suppose this project involved my predisposition to consider the mundane as worth of artistic attention as faraway landscapes. Suppose this project would involve the photographing of mundane activities as fine art subjects. Suppose this would be a thing.

Also, a self-portrait. Which is either me asserting my sense of self coming into the new year or narcissism.

The last post of 2014. A year, any year, comes with highs and lows. There will be triumphs and there will be defeats. At it’s close when the past twelves months give way to 365 days of untold possibilities we hope that we can tally joys as being in greater abundance than our sorrows.

I can happily say that as far as my photography is concerned the year was a very good one. I was prolific. My skills, even after the years I’ve been involved with photography increased in appreciable ways that made me very happy. Finally, I was able to give back to the open source photography community with several video tutorials.

Heading into 2015 it is my hope that things will continue positively. I have big plans.

Nothing is too high for the daring of mortals: we storm heaven itself in our folly.
