Daily 5

January 8, 2011

The news today really upset me. The point of this blog is to share my photography and things that inspire me visually. The way I feel today emphasizes how connected mood and art are. I mean that in broad terms with culture, world events and how they affect art movements but also for me on a personal level.  Maybe I should’ve got out, walked around and looked for someone or something to photograph today, instead of being so disgusted by the ugly side of some humans. The ugliness caused by some twisted perspective on what’s important in life and what some people act on.  Yes, in fact, now I see that I should have taken my camera and gone for a drive. Looking for beauty is important. Creating beauty is important.

This is an older portrait I took with my 4×5 of a woman in Los Angeles.  Even though it’s a close up, the person feels far away – in thought. Appropriate for today.
