A home for the things I think are worthy of sharing. Will largely be photography based.

The Long Game : Inspiration to keep going

DaVinci

During my usual lunchtime blog viewing I came across a couple of videos I thought I’s share.

I love inspiration videos – of various guises – to create art, help those around you, share knowledge, find new skills etc and these are similar but a little different. They show how we shouldn’t give up – that over much of time “success” (however you judge that) often isn’t a quick thing, isn’t immediate. I think the films are correct in stipulating that in the modern age we’re used to getting everything quickly – the hear and now – which can mean we’re more impatient than we used to be. So hopefully they may help anybody who thinks it’s too late for them to “make it” or similar.

I do feel this occasionally – photography is my passion however not my career – I work in IT, but at least in a photography related industry. As with many people with a passion but not profession in such field I sometimes wonder if I could/should/would be any good as a professional photographer – but also think that maybe at 38 it could be too late. Thankfully it’s never too late …. or so say these videos 😉
