12:00 noon came. I popped what I thought was a new battery into my old Canon and drove to the spot I’d been thinking would be good for this project for months. I parked the van, found the shot…. drat, this was a DEAD battery. Now what? Sometimes things don’t turn out as you plan.
Back to house, repeat above steps. Took 2 pictures just to be sure. Good thing because my camera has been glitchy on the transfer into iPhoto and only one came through.
Like any new project, like any new direction, there are questions.
1. Why am I doing this?
2. Does anyone care?
3. Will I be able to meet my goals?
4. What will I learn?
I think that, in the beginning, all projects seem a little wishy-washy, but I always have faith in the notion that I will learn something–perhaps, a lot of things. My dad always says that every good teacher should ask themselves one simple question at the end of every day… what did I learn from my students today? I guess everything inside of us starts with a little curiosity. Don’t you think?
I do like this picture. And I love this place.
Hunting for hidden treasures,
Fishing for connections,
and TRESPASSING! But only a little. Say, like a foot or two. And only for like about 15 seconds.
TRY THIS WEEK: Set goals, ask questions, break rules.
