Art and Fear

“You make good work by (among other things) making lots of work that isn’t very good, and gradually weeding out the parts that aren’t good, the parts that aren’t yours. It’s called feedback, and it’s the most direct route to learning about your own vision. It’s also called doing your work. After all, someone has to do your work, and you’re the closest person around.”
― David Bayles, Art and Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking


I believe that taking lots of photographs (my art), has helped me learn and grow as a photographer. I’m still working on finding my vision and voice as a photographer, but at least I do know that I truly enjoy the making of my work.

These images were from a walk around Duke gardens yesterday, taken in the White Garden pond behind the visitor center.
