Comments Regarding Street Photography

Even though I find much of the work I see as totally distasteful, horrible, and invasive, by self styled street photographers – I don’t agree or accept judgments on why things should or should not be a certain way, because that is exactly what they are, judgments.

Particularly when people have a pre-disposition that they are weighing things against, and therefore judging the status quo from.

If we are following a projection of someone else’s idea’s then we will be in a position where we judge everything else from this limited viewpoint.

Bottom line, I see many people are just copying and regurgitating someone else’s work. We need to be careful in alienating entire genre’s of people, perhaps they are moving through this and searching for their own style, in the end ‘this’, is what it’s all about.

Keep shooting,

What are Ethics?

When asked in a Law class recently I thought this was a sound answer, this was my opinion; 

The aggregate of the subjective viewpoints, of a societies perception, of their inherent values.

The Psychology of Extreme Sports

Interesting “justification” regarding extreme sports.

There is a illusion/delusion that people think that they ‘have to’ or ‘need to’ or even ‘want to’ do such an act. The fact that people ‘try to “be” something’, ie.. a hero, means that they are seeking resolution of a major internal glitch outside of themselves.

And then, to add insult to injury, compulsively feel that they feel that need to keep doing this to feel natural, and alive, where this is the exact counterfeit to truth, where they seek death, to feel…. alive.
