Vivian Maier. Amateur. Artist.
Yesterday I clicked over to The Novel Woman's blog. I know I had been there before...I wanted to reacquaint myself with her blog.
A Novel Woman
On her blog I watched this really cool trailer from the documentary "Finding Vivian Maier".
Thank you Pam.
I am going to say something unpopular but true.
Not everyone who loves photography needs to go into business. It is not required.
People will ask you to take their pictures when they see you make pretty pictures...
but business is completely different than loving photography.
Vivian did not go into business. She quietly and secretly made her art with her camera.
Mysterious and Inspiring.
I have been following a girl on Flickr for years named Allison; She calls herself Snippets from Suburbia.
She is THE most creative and talented photographer I know.
She is an amateur.
Snippets from Suburbia: Explored
Thank you for the wonderful recipes and ideas yesterday.
Melinda says 'people love to talk about food.'
Katie says 'people like to be asked questions.'
I say, "It was great! Thanks!"
Encourage one another,
