Do you ever just think to yourself… “What in the world am I doing?”
The subject of my photos today had to be thinking that at some point. Who is he and why is he standing next to a freeway dressed like a leprechaun?
By the same token, who am I that as soon as I left the church building this morning, I pulled my camera out of my purse, rolled down the window and prepared… just in case something caught my eye. Who does that?
What are the chances that I’d have my camera poised and ready at just the moment this green guy in suit and top hat looked and waved in my direction? Obviously, not that unlikely since I captured two quick frames before we whizzed by on our way home.
Such is the crazy life of a creative. It causes us to do things that others may see as odd, out of the ordinary, even abnormal. So here’s to you this Sunday afternoon… a quote from the famous Apple Think Different Video…
Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently… they change things, they push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world… are the ones who do.
Tell me. What might someone else see as “cRazY” in your life as a creative?
Technical Knowledge and Images: Watched PBS documentary, The Wizard of Photography, about Eastman Kodak. Fascinating film about the man who put a camera in the hands of regular people, who democratized photography. While his business life was an incredible success, his life ended alone with suicide at 77.
