Photography is something that was always easier for me when alone. Numerous times when I went out with my son for some father son time if I brought the camera I'd find myself ignoring him some because I was distracted by 'shots" that caught my eye. I got tired of this tug of war and so if I wanted to spend time with my son, I didn't bring the camera. Lately I've been going for regular photo walks with my friend Gabe (the photographer next to the Martian text). It is still a little bit distracting having someone with you, but a bit easier since they too have a camera and they get the "being in the zone" thing which means you will be blowing them off for shots from time to time and them doing the same as well. I'm finally getting closer on my search for color photos that satisfy me.
