Today it’s time to celebrate again. I have reached collage number 200 of 365, another great big and wonderful milestone! So let us leave our worries of giving up behind, and continue forward, towards the goal.
The theme of these collages can be seen in the vintage illustrations of a few Rollieflex cameras, that made me think of photography and capturing the moment. Being in the moment, while documenting it and so on. I hope you like these collages, with some quotes thrown in for good measure.
You can always hoover over the image to find out what number it is in the 365 project/year. Enjoy.
Those who want to be serious photographers, you’re really going to have to edit your work. You’re going to have to understand what you’re doing. You’re going to have to not just shoot, shoot, shoot. To stop and look at your work is the most important thing you can do.
I love photography’s power. It lets you reveal beauty in scenes which are often considered ugly or unworthy of attention.
The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.
And here’s number 200 (yay me!):
When that shutter clicks, anything else that can be done afterward is not worth consideration.
When you are younger, the camera is like a friend and you can go places and feel like you’re with someone, like you have a companion.
A vision isn’t just a picture of what could be; it’s an appeal to our better selves.

Now that I look at the collage titles together they should all end with exclamation marks, as they seem to be requests to myself to live in the now (!) while documenting for the future (!)… :-) Or are the mellow poetry on how fast life is passing me by?
Perhaps they reveal some of my travel stress and worries, and are titles that gently try to encourage me to move forward without all those worries inside taking over?
