Lori and I moved into a new place this past fall and we have been getting to know the neighbors. The new place backs onto a wooded area and we have a lot more yard. When the cold weather set in we started to put out a number of feeders to keep the birds (and squirrels) feed through the colder months, frozen ground and snow. We have had an unusually cold and snowy winter so I imagine that the critters in the area appreciate the buffet that Lori puts out every few days. One of our favorite neighbors is a pair of flickers. They have a number of tree branches they sit on and from there they watch the world around them. They are amazing to watch, and of course, they can make a bit of a racket on the metal roof.
I had a conversation with a friend a while back about photography and at one point, relating to photo editing, I asked him, Why do you care what someone else does so much? There was a long, almost uncomfortably long pause. The answer that he gave didn’t really matter much to me, but that pause really got me thinking about the idea of why do we care about things the way we do.
So this week’s podcast dives into the notion of caring about your work and how it impacts you and the viewers of your work.
