Farmer Bob's field in late fall.
All good photographers fret over their photos. They try to get the lighting right, the perfect pose and a tack sharp image. While I love the challenge, sometimes I would like to care just a little bit less. The big camera comes out for the money shots…graduation, a first of something, a special award etc. There's much to be said for the high quality, high meaning photo that makes your experience and commitment indispensable. But sometimes in a quest for lower blood pressure, it's nice to realize now and again that quality and the need for a deeper meaning is optional. Enter the iPhone. It's part of what makes photography fun and spontaneous. Instigram alone has proven that there is also a special place in my heart for the half-baked photo. It's here you can find perfection in imperfection or meaning in just about every possible moment in life. It's is here you can show care but in a way that understated and optional. Many of these shots represent the subconscious photographer in me, like a sleep-walker, taking pictures when they are hardly necessary or planned. They're random but in the same breath, all have their own special place.
