What more do you want from me people?

I've reached a point where I am not completely sure what the point of this photoblog is anymore...okay that's a bit of a harsh statement, however I have reached a block of some sort. I'm not creative in my innovation anymore. Don't get me wrong I am still coming up with new ways of photographing situations and people however I'm not enjoying as much as I used to. Nothing seems to be fresh anymore. I wonder if it has anything to do with presentation or subject matter. For one I don't take the camera out on creative, innovative shoots anymore. The camera only comes out for work.

Something has to change. For that reason I need to do more photowalks and creative pursuits regularly. In the meantime can I ask for some more contribution in terms of what you would want to see more of. This is the part where you have the opportunity to grab what you want.

I'll be on standby this week for your requests.

Oh no...don't let the fun go out of it for you...that would be tragic. I think you are right to think you need to just get out and go on photowalks. I've been to busy to do that as often as I would like to or used to and it definitely takes a toll. So as Nike says "Just do It"!

This is a wonderful shot all the same.
He's selling himself ... a man with a huge ego.

That is rather harsh Richard, am assuming your comments refer to Jide's write up. Jide I think you should present your art as you see fit and let people make of it as they wish.
Jide Alakija: I think Richard is referring to the image and not my text.

Don't even think about it, dude. I do see what you mean though. But why not try a completely different approach/subject entirely - maybe some aspect of photography/photojournalism you've never really delved into.
Yes to the image NP sorry to confuse you. richard
