What I enjoy, is that over the years of shooting, certain things, certain subjects kept popping up. Oh, looky there! There’s an interesting theme.
Sometimes over analyzing can be a bad thing. But sooner or later you have to try to understand why you do what you do. I like to keep the spontaneity, but once you notice something, it’s there forever. It can lock you in, or you try to shake it. I try to do that old Zen philosophical thing before hitting the streets, emptying one’s self to be open and ready for anything. Sometimes it works. Sometimes you just have to be conscious of what’s going on around you and within you.
There are times you have to be conscious of not doing the same old thing. Sometimes you just have to walk on the opposite side of the street to break old habits, or just to see what’s there.
