If you have read Weston's daybooks you will note that most of his most famous photographs were done when he was beset with financial and family troubles.
I live in NJ, and seriously considered moving to New Mexico. We got to Florida to relax! However I have come to believe that the photographic frontier is right here in the metropolitan area. Although I feel that I am really up against it (two young children as well) it makes value my time more and look harder.
