Photo Mojo


Posted this on Flickr, but wanted it here to for my records.

This is all I got that was worth anything at the Strange Fruit performance at Discovery Green.  I just wasn't feeling it that night.

Unfortunately that wasn't an isolated incident.  I don't know where my photography mojo has gone.  My first reaction is to blame the killer school year which has sucked the life out of me this year, but it isn't just that.  For a while I have felt like I'm going through the motions.  I don't feel like my photography is particularly inspiring and I'm not particularly inspired to go out and shoot.  

Sometimes I wonder if I should take a break, but that would drive my compulsive side crazy with the need to keep my photoblog running.  I'm proud of my photoblog and I don't want to take a break from it. Sometimes I think I need to focus on my film cameras to try to get some of my joy of photography back and do something completely different.  Sometimes I think I just need to get out there in the cool air (I said cool air!  Where are you cool air!) and wander around and rediscover my love of exploring Houston.  I know I used to have it.  I just don't know where it went.

I have read a lot recently about people going through this and I have even found myself telling other people that they aren't alone.  Everyone goes through it.  It will come back.  But it is still a hard thing to go through personally.  Yet I can't imagine living my life without camera in hand.
