I guess I am always looking backwards, or inwards, which explains why my pictures look the way they do. I like recesses, and shadows, and how the closer you look at something, the less certainty there is around the edges. So, on a day when creating something seems too painful, sometimes I trick myself by saying, “Just use the camera for 10 or 15 minutes.”
It helps to have a miniature Blue Willow tea set under those circumstances. Not everyone is so lucky.
