Inside My Head

This is the shot that came of forcing myself to get up off my ass yesterday and try to do something better than phoning it in.

I had what I wanted in my head, and this comes pretty close with everything but the lighting. I’m not quite satisfied with the lighting, but I know what I need to do to fix it if I decide to reshoot it. So there’s that, and that’s a start.

I wanted a visual representation of what’s been going on inside my head photographically, and this captures that pretty well. There’s a lot of noise and distraction and decision-making that’s going on about other things that’s keeping me from focusing on my work and my art, and sometimes all of that gets so overwhelming that there’s not enough of my brain left to make choices which make me happy with my photography.

And on top of all that, of course, there’s Gypsy. Worrying about whether I’m going to get her fixed in time for next month’s travel to the Carolinas has really got me stressed and is dragging me down badly. You can help with that by hiring me, or spreading the word that I’m looking for work (and saying nice things about my photography), or even just tossing a few bucks into the GoFundMe that my friends have set up for the purpose.


Help Louis Get Back On The Road!


Thank you, by the way, to all the lovely people who’ve done all of those things. I’m working on a way to thank all of you more concretely, and I’ll be sure to make an announcement here at some point on what that will be. So keep checking back for that.

Meanwhile, I’m still in the Washington DC area, I’m still looking for work, and I’m still looking forward to roaming around the country again this year. Getting my car back on the road will go a long way toward quieting down my damned head.
