Thanks to all for the kind comments on my pictures. I was chatting with a friend the other day and she said my photographs "move her". Then, my dad of all people told me that my pictures make him look at things differently and that he's really impressed with how I notice and frame the small things. It's always surprising and gratifying when people say things like that about my work. I'm very critical of myself, which has been one of the problems in my attempts at freehand drawing, so the positive reinforcement is  much appreciated.

Free association is described as a "psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content." Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self.

Well, I've been a member here almost exactly a month and I just uploaded my 200th picture. Not too bad, eh?

I'm feeling pretty good about my photographic skills, but I do think I need more variety in my subject matter.
