Fire and Fotos

I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.

There are forest fires around Northern California and although we're not in danger, we are getting the smoke. At sunset the sun poked through with fiery orange/red colors. I took this shot, as part of the effort to take some photos that grab my eye every day. This is the one core concept that all of my teachers have emphasized: take pictures and then more pictures and don't ever stop. They also advise to look at the work of the masters and their stories. I found this book on Walker Evans, "Walker Evans Polaroids". It's amazing, he kept going to the very end of his life. It well illustrates both points.
