it seems like i'm surrounded by a ton of hopeful photographers. everyone is a photographer. i can't tell if it's because i hang out with people with like interests, or if everyone really is a photographer. but when i'm standing in the midst of so many and most of them are much, much better than me, i wonder: what am i doing? why don't i put my camera down and let them do their job? why would i strut around among them, pretending that i know what's going on, that i have some sort of handle on the topic?

right now i feel discouraged and i can hear a million voices in my heading, "just give up! just give up!" it's hard to keep going when you hear those voices.
i'm grateful for jasmine star, who makes me feel like i'm okay, even if she doesn't know me.
and, for jen osullivan, who is amazing in a way that makes me feel like i can get better.
and ryan, of course, who thinks the world of me, even when i don't deserve it.
