This month, I stepped out of my natural introversion (if that's even a word!?) and chatted to some artists and photographers at an art fair. It was fantastic to talk to them about their work and hear about their inspiration, their process, their aims and what they strove for in their art. My expectation was that it would really be an opportunity for me to act as a sort of sponge - to soak it all up and store it away in my creative bank. And it was. But the real surprise for me was that they were just as interested in hearing about my photography, asking about my inspiration, my aims and what I strove for. Um, wow!
I guess if other people can take my photography seriously, perhaps it's OK for me to. :)
