Everybody’s a Critic

When everyone’s a critic it can take a thick skin, or a healthy amount of self confidence, or both, to display one’s work. We can begin to wonder if our work is good enough and start trying to make our work perfect. That can be a formula for disaster. In Shakespeare’s King Lear , the Duke of Albany offers this warning, “striving to be better, oft we mar what’s well”. Wanting to get better at what we do is admirable, but not if it stifles our art, or spoils the fun.

A typical New York minute.  The same expression everyone has when exiting Penn Station for the first time.  Where the hell am I ?  😀

Say What?

You know how you can be walking around and catch a part of a conversation that attracts your attention? On a recent meet up with some members of the Monochromia blog we found ourselves waiting in Grand Central Station. I was walking past the information kiosk when those words caught my attention. That’s all I heard, but it was enough to spin me around in search of the source, hoping for a photograph. I saw this and the camera came up long enough to record this image and then everything changed. People stepped in front of me, and by the time I got another look it was all over and the woman at the window was gone. Damn, this street photography business is hard for an old guy like me!
