Is it All in My Head…

by Mark Forman on September 10, 2017

I just got watching probably the best Joe Rogan Podcast episode I ever watched with Henry Rollins. What makes things good or the best-just personally resonating/connecting with the person, their passion/vibe, outlook/flow... The cool thing about Rollins which I've seen and heard before is how driven he is almost to the point of distraction about being active and productive in his life which would include most waking moments. This is a good high for me on top of the nice caffeine buzz I already had going from the nice Oolong tea. I'm actually thinking about putting air in the tire of my bike which I got back from my son after graduating college. Just pedal around, think about stuff and take some photos. I can think of worse things. I realized during listening to him that I do much traveling through the lens of my camera meaning I don't feel the need to go great distances often. I enjoy trips when I do them just it's great for me to be able to have a trip during other people's totally mundane moments. For me that is winning.

Seeing this shot reminds me that's it's been a little while since I went out for some night shooting.I think in anything of value there is always some element of struggle. The night is much easier to give in to inertia and just stay at home...however there is the allure of a shot or too totally unique from my others. The right compositional elements, good lighting, the decisive moment. These are things that you can't really control. Call it the thrill of the hunt. Maybe tonight's the night...


Could be Worse!

Went with my wife to closest large wet (traditional) market in ShuiNan. Actually, had been there just last week for first time in a while. I thought I'd practice my close-up from lower angle work. Always like that perspective. Have been processing while listening to some great music-Live Hendrix, some classic reggae-Could be Worse as the title says.

This year is still year of the Rooster. I can rock with that. Chicken is one of my favorite meats. Alice and Chains- Rooster was an awesome fav back in the day. Never was a Bulls or Air Jordan fan but there is a pleasant visceral quality to red and black together. I don't usually […]
