Taking ourselves too seriously
Ask any pro photographer. Ours is a serious undertaking, more than just a job, but a calling if you will. We exist at the nexus of art and commerce balancing our creative needs with the demands of clientele that often believe the genius is in the camera used. We're under-appreciated and beset on all sides with interlopers lacking the appropriate respect for the medium and a sense of ethics.
Or, so you would think by the forum comments on several social media and Internet sites.
I won't deny being alternately frustrated and elated on a regular basis. But, I also know I have a choice. I can choose to dwell on the negative aspects of my vocation or find a way to celebrate my fortune - really, how many people actually get to pursue their dream job?
Today, I choose to laugh and share the funny.
