so i'm again wasting my time on websites like facebook or DA. you know it's that shitty time of the year, especially for those who don't live on an island near the equator (except haiti). it's all fucking grey..
i had a funny conversation lately here on DA. funny because it reminds me of where i am. i don't mind if people think i'm being jealous
or arrogant. that really doesn't bother me, because it just shows how much they know about the things i'm talking about.
sometimes it feels like offering a good bottle of red wine and watch people drinking the coke instead. maybe it's most important to find the right people to show your work to. maybe that's the only thing that can save you in the long term.
if i was a drummer, i'd talk about drumming. but i'm not a drummer so i'm not talking about it. it's that simple. i'm a photographer so i talk about photography. if you think that's being arrogant, then i can't help you. just because i know what i'm talking about should i be sorry about it ? it's not that i criticise music, because i can't. i wouldn't dare to, it would be embarrassing !
i really love that quote of `photonig
"you usually only have to visit the author's page to realise that the descriptions under their own work are worded such as to explain to the world that they are very technically adept, use techniques that many at dA would eschew, and are, therefore, on a higher, more elite plane than the rest of us
he's of course referring to me.
sorry mister that i share my knowledge about photographic techniques and let the pictures talk for themselfs instead of inveting some stupid stories to make them seem more "art" than just "plain" photography.
this is what i like the most. people who talk about such things without knowing anything. it's like me criticising the drummer, i think it's just embarrassing.
sorry folks to bother you, that's why i called this "escapism". i'm just in a usual winter depression trying to waste my time on something.
