- Robert Frost’s “….take the path less traveled….” was mentioned, as was
- Einstein’s definition of insanity – Repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result
Here’s another relevant observation by my favorite photographer, Freeman Patterson –
If you look at my examples in the aforementioned posts, you’ll see what he means. The objective is all about exploration & learning, and less about success 100% of the time. Every trip doesn’t lead to Shangri-La and every photo isn’t a Pulitzer prize winner – or even a good photo. It’s about the journey, not the destination, when you start on the road to originality.
For digital shooters, the roll Freeman mentions is film 😉
