Julieanne Kost’s “Passing Time”

Our globetrotting photo evangelist has created a slideshow of images taken during her travels.

I would not expect the images to hold the same significance to you, the viewer, as they did for me. But that is not the point.

I am sharing this slideshow to encourage every image-maker to begin a visual journal for themselves – as a personal project. I am a firm believer that you have to exercise your creativity and you have to practice in order to improve.  So when I found myself in a rut last year, I started capturing images that were meaningful to me –  purely because I wanted to, for my own reasons – not because I think someone else is going to “like” it. And I had a delightful time.

    John,
    Just what I needed, in a rut myself. At 65 opening a new studio like 3,000 sq ft

    Ms Kost’s slideshow suggest a lost night’s of life, or one who is prey to some kind of depression. If so, I can identify. Thank you Ms. Kost.

    Of course we know that John is hobnobbing with the rich and famous in Guatemala with his big Red One around his neck,living the good life in a penthouse tree house.

    Gorgeous As always, kudos to Ms. Kost.

    Author Juanita Brown wrote that, “much of Western culture,and North American society in particular, focuses on having the ‘right answer’ rather than discovering the ‘right question.’”

    Your comments reminded me of hers.

    Just beautiful. Thanks for posting it.
    I really understand Julianne’s reasoning, it’s similar to why I started a photo blog that I don’t really talk about or promote (this being a rare exception), it’s my way of overcoming that inner censor. It’s said that the best camera is the one you have in your hand, so I just shoot and post – with my iPhone (and Photoshop Express, of course).

    I hope you’re enjoying Guatemala. :)
