I am a Failure, and I Love It!

One of my "favorite-est" photographers in the whole-wide-world is Jasmine. I swear she is a picture taking genius. She recently posted something so near and dear to my heart. Every single day I think about becoming better... a better wife, a better mom, a better sister, a better daughter, a better photographer. Sometimes I get so frustrated because an image I knew I had, turned out to be a Crap Shoot because my ISO was not perfect, or my Shutter speed was too low, or this or that...what Jasmine shared made me realize that the skills we do have are because of failures. We have to fail to succeed...does that make sense?

So on the spur of the moment, my friend gave me a tangerine off her tangerine tree (she spoils me every fall) and I snapped an impromptu pic...kinda crapshoot, terrible composition, but heck, practice might lead to greatness!

I too follow Jasmine. She is great.
I know what you mean about striving to be better.

I haven't had camera love in the last couple of weeks, but now I'm going to send mine in for repair. maybe that will help.
