I Wonder

Post by St3v3M » Sun Apr 01, 2018 5:13 pm

Sometimes I wonder if you realize the impact your work has on others or do you think it's just another image? S-

Here's an example of one man sharing his vision and changing the world - Have You Ever Really Seen the Moon?

His power came not from what he saw but what he shared. That's why it's important for us to share our work, whether here or elsewhere.

nicely said - and because he was sincerely interested in something, it was infectious. The story is about the man, not the moon.

I kinda think it was about both - the moon is a permanent, mysterious and eternal presence in the human eye and psyche. The man channeled that connection, so to speak, with the sharing of his project. The impact is from the combination perhaps?

yeah, that makes sense - both. The story and the storyteller. The story is stronger for the storyteller, and the storyteller wouldn't have anything to say without the story.

Choked me up.
Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
