thanks for watching!
Today is a strange day...
Indeed, this really is a strange and difficult period for me...
Those who follow me and read my journals, already know that I had
some difficulties lately, combined with a lack of creative inspiration,
at least for what concerns my photos.
But you know what? I have a lot of pics to share, really, a lot!
And I still have not published them just because I'm always, sadly, hopelessly unsatisfied of what I do!
But why? Of course, there is always something to learn,
and it's wonderful having the desire to improve themselves, but I'm not a pro!
I take pictures just because I love it, it's fun, and I like to show the pictures
of the places I visit to other people!
But this is not my work, I wish it were, but I know I don't have the necessary talent!
I love to read your comments, criticism, suggestions ... everything is useful for me!
Yet something keeps me from happily share my photos,
maybe because I'm very picky with myself
and I think that other people will be just as demanding with my works!
I'm always afraid to disappoint others!
I often imagine that someone, looking at one of my photographs,
might think: "what an ugly photo! I just wasted precious seconds of my time
watching this horrible picture" ... well, usually this thought terrifies me,
it makes me feel as if I were guilty of an artistic crime!
But now I must say stop, really, because I don't take it anymore!
My photographs are not anything special,
and maybe they will not win awards and competitions,
but they represent the way I see things: there's a part of me, in my every ugly picture!
But there is one thing to say: no one is forced to look at them,
it's a free choice of each of you!
So, look at them, but only if you want to do it!
I will always be happy to receive criticism and comments,
even negative, if that's what you think!
But I don't want to be influenced by my fear of failure and disappoint others,
There are already too many things in my life that I can not control,
too many difficult situations to deal with...
and dA was supposed to be a place to take a break from everyday problems
and sharing my pictures!
And that's exactly what I will try to do, from now on!
I will try to be less strict with myself, I'll try to share more photos,
and even if they are not perfect... well, never mind!
I will always do my best, of course, then you will decide if it's worth to follow me, or not.
And if you don't think it's worth it, you just have to look for something better elsewhere!
dA is full of real artists who share photographs so beautiful to leave you breathless!
But I am what I am, and my photos represent me:
I don't want to feel guilty if they are not spectacular, however,
'cause I'll put all my effort and I do what I can with what I have, always!
Thank you for your patience
