We only have a limited time here, so we damn well better examine the motivations for what we do.
Art, life lessons, and guy tal
March 19 2017
It doesn't matter how rich you are or how talented you are or what you do for a living. We all come into this world the same way, and we all leave it the same way. The only thing that matters is right now, and the only thing to fear is that last moment of clarity when you look back upon your life and count your blessings and regrets, and wonder if you had truly lived.
You might ask, "what does this have to do with photography, or landscapes, or anything?" and that would be a good question. First of all, go read photographer guy tal's book "more than a rock" and you will understand. I've read it twice (now on a third go) because he lays it all out there from his own experience. If you still don't understand it's likely you're one of those people who hasn't made it to that turning point in life when you get the undeniable urge to correct your course. It's coming. No one is perfect, and very few of us do everything we want from day one of understanding so chances are when you have that personal moment of clarity there will be something to fix.
