Sometimes we need a little reminder to jump-start our creativity. I was talking with a musician friend (who is also one hell of a photo curator/editor and writer) earlier in the week. We talked at length about changes and updates I need to make to my website, which for me is a daunting task, and it left me feeling, well, uninspired. Never one to allow me the pity-party for one I was about to throw, she reminded me, “you live in Bed-Stuy, one of the most photogenic neighborhoods in New York. Get out there and create.” She was right. I hadn’t taken my camera out and around the neighborhood since before Hurricane Sandy. The storm completely threw me off. I needed to get back out there and just shoot.
