Message from monkey_biscuit

I'm not a photographer, first of all, so don't get your hopes up. I take pictures with a nervous twitch like impulse that can't be easily controlled.
Cameras, to me, are simple extensions of the simplest explanation of who I am, what I did whilst briefly -in the grand scheme of things- here?

I'd rather draw, paint, carve; but they're all time consuming, monotonous processes with little personal self-reward. The reason, the importance, of beginning a project is too often dislodged by a new shiny thought, leaving piles of incomplete 'tasks.' Cameras help me take a mental snapshot of what fascinates, or simply catches my eye, and place that new sensation somewhere where I/We can view and question it.

NB. I've had comments regarding my candid 'exploitation', my defence is simple: We view these characters every day. Some, with: disdain, desire, disgust, respect, empathy, judgement, admiration etc., etc. Whatever, we all do it!

Why, whilst I document and imprint my own identity into the wastes of time available should I need to justify what my inquisitive, and, utterly autonomic eyes are drawn to? With people, I glance and click whereas most will just glance and judge...what's the difference?

Anything else is just pretty, or pretty me at least.


Thanks for your eye time. :)
