I was talking to a friend on the phone today and he mentioned how much he appreciated my post about what photography had given to me. I shared something with him that was a little eye opening, even for me!
For the last 47 years I’ve worked very hard to try and become a very good craftsman, dare I say, a great craftsman. What has that resulted in? I’ve accomplished my goal and so have thousands of others with the same goal, some have gone further than I have. So was it worth it? It depends on how you judge success.
I’ve had a blast, I’ve enjoyed peace, I’ve been challanged and I’ve grown, I’ve enjoyed some standing ovations, and some quiet rooms too! The work has been a means to and end, actually the end was the work. Along the way I’ve gotten something more valuable than the images, friends, compatriots, good company, and a “means” that mattered!
Was it worth it? You bet!
