Your photography is evolving from here to there to somewhere else. This is familiar. But maybe it’s happening much faster than usual.
You could ask it to slow down, but it can’t and it won’t.
The picture you take today renders everything you did yesterday obsolete.
Those who stop growing die.
And those who don’t die have another set of problems.
Making the new photographs means letting the old ones go, even if they’re kicking and screaming while you do.
Say goodbye. Be firm. But go ahead and cry if you want.
Keep moving. You were never meant to just stand there.
