I’m not a great photographer, I don’t think I’m a particularly good photographer, (not false modesty I’m afraid, I always think that there is so much more to learn), but I do try hard at my hobby, and I also like to pass what meagre knowledge I have on to other people. I get a massive kick out of watching people progressing from not knowing what a histogram is, to producing a breath-taking image and realizing what a great hobby we have in photography.
I like to think that whatever I have passed on has been useful and when people you have been helping make some stunning photographs it’s a great feeling when you think that you may have been part of that in a small way.
Well, a friend of mine is doing a 365 daily project and posted her submission for the title of the day: ‘Someone who inspires me…’and when I looked on Flickr to see the images that had been uploaded, I saw that the subject she chose was me!
I didn’t know what to say when I saw it – shocked, stunned, gob-smacked and humble are all words that come to mind, but don’t really do justice to what I was feeling. It’s probably the greatest compliment that has ever been paid to me.
Thank you Carol so much and thank you too James for your kind comment.
