Photo-heart Connection




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. :)

  1. Good one, Becs! But instead of taking your photography seriously, how about taking it joyfully?! It was fun to hear of your exchange with other artists!
    Thank you for visiting my place and for your friendly comments!

    1. I wouldn't do it at all if I didn't find it joyful!

  3. I LOVE that image! Isn't it fun to talk with other artists like that? It always surprises me, when they ask about my art, and appear as interested in mine as I am in theirs. I'm glad you had this wonderful experience, maybe making you think about your art in a different way.

  4. Kudos to you for opening up! I find I have the same reticence in talking to others about their art or my own. But what an important lesson you learned from this encounter. I love your image - the graphic nature of the signs and the emotional meaning behind it.

  6. Love this photo. And love that you had great two way conversations with artists. Most artists at shows, especially if you ask them about their art while mentioning you have similar interests, are more than happy to talk. It's a wonderful way to make connections, if only for a few minutes.
