A disconnect every so often is good. Good for the soul. I long sometimes for the old days before the internet and social media, where one had to make connections face to face. Discourse then was extremely hard to find. Most people, if they weren’t connected through a gallery, a photo club, etc., worked by themselves, pretty much in a vacuum. You found out about others work through magazines, books, or exhibitions. Film cameras were all there were and you stuck with a model/brand that worked for you. Technology, the ease of the internet and social media bring their own set of concerns. Good or bad, things move forward and one has to adapt.
