With putting in 60 plus hours a week, I have to admit I have been bone tired. And I was feeling a bit creatively blocked. Umm, that’s not a good thing for a photographer. So what does one do in this situation? They call on another creative soul for help. I talked with my friend Rhonda, who is a wonderful photographer; very creative and well just a beautiful person, inside and out. I have known Rhonda for more than 20 years so when she gave me a self portrait assignment, she knew I would whine and cry and say, “no, I can’t do that”. I think she also knew that I would come back in a few days and say “OK, I’ll take that challenge”. So I did. And was it ever a challenge. I hate to put myself out there; I hate to be vulnerable, much like many of you. But it was worth it. I walked away with a introspective personal project and through the project I unblocked some of my creative flow. Success!
As Brene’ Brown says “Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.” I think she may be right. Thank you Brene’ and a big thank you to Rhonda, you are an inspiration in more ways than one!
