And if a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. I know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible. – Richard Avedon – 1970
So…There are days when I don’t do any photography. Sometimes, there are many days that fly by where I don’t do something related to photography. OK, well, that is not really true: I’m always taking photographs in my mind. When I see interesting things, even if I don’t capture these things with a physical camera, I compose the shot in my mind. I frame the subject. I consider what the exposure settings might be. I create what some people refer to as ‘neurochromes’: creating photographs in the mind. Thus, in this sense, I’m taking photographs, or doing something photography-related, all the time – everyday. Thus, I’m not capturing physical photographs or editing these photographs on a daily basis; however, it is part of my nature to be composing photographs all the time.
