The one real key to "Nirvana", however, is in the realization that ... YOU! You, yourself, inexperenced, thrashing through the widerness ... have the capability of producing FINE work, and YOU WILL, although you may not appreciate it at the time.
Is OK with me. I don't expect to write anything a complex as MacBeth ... but all though my work, there have been passages that might well compare.Your creativity will truly be stifled if you do something that just rocks, but you don't know what you did. Don't be a someone with a thousand monkeys with typewriters hoping that one of them writes MacBeth.
... "Don't know what (I) did?"
To me that translates to "mystery", and that to me, is VITAL.
I don't think I've ever really understood any ... most ... even a few of the factors... that produce "successful" (to me) work.
More and more I am amazed, and mystified. i've been able to discipline myself to concentrate on the successes, and to let the rest fade into the background.
The successes make it all worth while - more than.
I love this miraculous "photography"... whatever it is.
