simple, really


I saw this on a friend's bedside table. The combination of words struck a chord with me. TWAANG! Real Simple Fraud. As an actor/director, I wonder sometimes if I really do have it in me. Lately, I've been thinking of setting up a small studio to do professional portrait photography. Again, I wonder if I can or just pretending that I can. I love all aspects of my work. And as confident as I am, there are days I feel I'm in a darkroom. We all have questions that need answers. I usually get them, answers that is. This is one of those other days. I'm restless and thinking too much. You know, that kind of day.

Enjoy the weekend my dears.

Hey, Edwin - great shots as usual - sorry I haven't been here in a couple days - I've missed some great ones - like the sun coming through the garden and the Christmas decoration! I love that one - and what you said about a snowman is true - amazing!
Anyway, I didn't figure out the blogger code thing, but I'll give it another crack and let you know if I've failed or not.
Later,
Joel

But of course I know that kind of day!
You&I wouldn't be You&I without em!

Only portrait? You have so many other photo-strings..so GO FOR IT, say I!

Or just do a good simple easy fraud & let me in on it.
Back-comments: the theme day: I'm not one of you DeePeers, but I have a huge archive of waist downs, cos of my habit of shooting from the hip when there's no time or discreet possibilities for anything else! The last was just last Wednesday, spectacular. Shame, really.
And the morning star - beyond words, so wonderful is it.
Finally, Ed, forget Nus Gnik - I am here to express my condolences for Malaysia losing its Snake/Ekans Gnik today to a cobra bite. Just read that in BBC Online. Beats Russian-flavored polonium-210 as a way to go any day. Now, no procrastination!

But then out of "that kind" of a day, comes lots of ideas and options and choice, no? Enjoy the thinking-and-being-restless, Eddie. Enjoy the serendipity, too.

I know that sort of day for sure. You DO have it in you, it's clear from your shots. Just do it, as they say. If you don't you'll always wonder...Good luck!

Thanks for being here everyone. My spirits are calmer thanks to you. Just thinking of how this hobby of mine becomes a part of my theatre work. The studio is one idea. Toying with others. Hmm...

Oh, God Bless the Malaysian Snake King, I just read it in the papers. Thanks for the heads-up Stew.
