A comment I left on Paige's blog:
I have found that taking a photo a day has expanded my mind a bit. I am taking the back roads to get places so I can spend time just looking (while I drive.)
And stories come from thinking about the new things I find to photograph. When I worked at a newspaper, the stories were someone else's mostly and my job was to illustrate them.
Now I can *own* both the words and the pictures.
(When I worked as a photojournalist at a daily news paper I didn't even make a new picture every day. Not even everyday that I worked. Soooo I am growing.)
