nothing to shoot around san jose? wow. come to toronto for a while--you'll be shooting like mad when you're back home

just go for a walk. camera in pocket, but you're going for a walk. don't even think about shooting. keep doing it day after day, just walking, looking at people, talking to people, joining philosophical discussions or saying fluff about the weather--until one day you'll just pull out the camera and start shooting again. let the pictures do the driving, don't shoot because you have a plan

for now, the important part is to put it away (while keeping it close )

ps. and if it never comes back, there's nothing wrong with it either
