    You are at a cross road junction now,

    Stop,

    Take a brake,

    Look around,

    Look inside your heart,

    Decide what interest you most,

    Make up your mind,

    Pack up,

    keep going............................................. ..... until the next junction

    photography is the capturing of truth, whatever that truth may be, and whether or not that truth is false is entirely up to you as well. o.O

    or as i'd like to call it, albeit via a quote, "to capture pigments of one's imagination"

    Photography is For:

    Artist to express themselves
    most people to capture the moment
    Old people to relive their memories
    for guys to tackle/tiko gals
    for pple to make $$$
    for pple to show off their equipment

    most importantly,
    For equipment manufacturers to make tons of $$$

    Photography is a fruit. Its nice to eat but will decompose it its being left alone for long a period of time.

    if you are feeling confused about your direction in life, i don't mind taking over your studio and clientele lor

    i can take over for a while while you go and think over it

    by the way, what is the name of your studio?
