Photography and the Addiction to Compliments, Praise, and Positive Criticism

One reason I’m moving my internet photography away from Facebook and to the open internet.

There is a lot more truth on the Internet than you think. One just has to read beyond the headlines and sometimes connect the dots.

Facebook is an artificial environment. Yeah, I use it every day I’m around it, I keep people entertained with my latest brain farts, but the photography?

Facebook is unfulfilling for this photographer. I don’t care about likes. I care about good photographs. I post too many photos with the intention of getting likes. I don’t show you much of the strange stuff on Facebook because when I do, nobody likes it.

Every so often, I feel I have the change my mindset. Mental cleansing. Cerebral enema, purge the Facebook red meat from my photographic colon.

Crude but effective.

Art isn’t always pretty.

Autumn scene in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado

Taken near Ridgway, Colorado at sunrise.

Ridgway is normally where I work from when doing Autumn photography in the San Juan Mountains. It provides good access to The Million Dollar Highway, the Dallas Divide and Last Dollar Road area.  There’s a good pizza joint in Ridgway too.
