This is a little quote that I heard from a friend and I thought that it applies not only to photographers but also to anyone going through life:
Life is like a camera- Focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't work out, take another shot.
I believe that anyone can get some good out of that saying... It applies to everyday life when you are going through a troubled time, you pick yourself up and try it again. I don't know how many times I have used this idea in photography... I always seem to mess up the very first shot, then rest tend to come into focus and be where I want them to be.
I also wanted to let everyone know that I have all the pictures of the Linn County Fair uploaded for viewing. If you want access please feel free to contact me.
Also I have two of the three days of the Bucklin Homecoming pictures uploaded for viewing. I am working on the third now...
