The Business of Business or Not & American Photography 25

Sometimes I am forced to wear too many hats.  Whatever happened to taking pictures.  I struggle with this business of photography.  When I'm over extended and far from my reason for it all I feel like I am skating on thin ice.  Is it being a woman or being terribly codependent that I feel as if I must try to fix and try do everything. I can't do everything.  I can't remember everything.  I can't know what I don't know.  I can't squeeze blood out of a turnip.  I take pictures.  And the quality of those pictures depends largely on having time, money and team work.  And then sometimes it rains.  Well, a lot of times, it rains.  

On another note...while tic tic ticking through websites I came across the Selected images for American Photography 25.  The imagery this year seems amazingly fresh to me.  Take some time and enjoy.  You might be inspired.  Clemence de Limburg is who caught my eye and in particular her home page image of Gitty and her daughter Esther Miriam having tuna salad on toast.
