I have been working on my photographs – editing and starting the printing process – I am working to get enough together for some kind of show – some kind of public thing — put myself out there.
I don’t know exactly how to approach it – but it needs to happen – I have nothing to lose.
Really – What’s the worse that can come from this?
I can’t think of any negatives – even “failure” is not a negative.
Failure is still a dive into something.
Not doing or trying that is the worse that could happen.
I don’t mind falling flat on my face.
I really don’t – I have nothing to lose.

What a wonderful picture! where did you take this? It looks very peaceful. ^_^
It’s Lake George, N.Y. Mandi – which is close to me.
Exactly Mike — and thank you!
Thank you Mike – The beauty is — I really don’t care what the outcome is – I am finding joy in the doing! It’s a different feeling
Very nice! could be a painting. Thanks for sharing
The only negatives are if you shot in film 😂
Ha Ha — HaHaHa – I got it Mek – you have a good day, or night, or tomorrow , or yesterday — note: I really got to figure out the time difference between me and you — I’m in N.Y- if that helps.
😊 goodmorning! I’m in country Victoria, about 100 or so km outdide of Melbourne, but on Melbourne time. I think it’s 16 hours? Quick internet search would confirm. Brb
Yes, you are 16hours behind at the moment (till daylight saving begins for us and endz for you- or is it the other way around? Too early here, I need coffee).😊
I think I got it – I usually write between 5-6 am which is 9-10 pm for you of the same day! I think — so good night Mek 🙂
Yep! That’s right! Except it’s afternoon of following day that I’m replying. 😊
That would be awesome, do go for it! Gorgeous photo!
Thanks Apple and always good when you stop by!
Failure can only be achieved by trying, Wayne. Go for it!
Nice, very nice Wayne!
Thank you – Cheryl – my Florida friend!
I think putting one’s self and one’s work out there is such an important step for every artist.
Thank you – There does come a point when you have to stand up and be counted–
A show sounds like a fabulous idea. Wayne Shorter and Wayne Hancock recently penned a letter to artists addressing some of the thoughts you raise in your post. You might like reading if you haven’t seen it: http://nesthq.com/wayne-shorter-herbie-hancock-open-letter/
Ha. Sorry. I meant Herbie Hancock.
I read that and love that – there is no failure and you can live in a sense of wonder — the thing about making the world a better place — that might be too much for this simple guy — but we move forward. 🙂
There are no negatives to this. I think you will find support from your peers!
Thanks Mike!! This is my third reply — the other two were much better but got lost.
Ah well. Lost to the ether!
“Lost to the Ether” what a great blog title Mike — consider it stolen!
