Transit, Day 4. Avoiding boredom.
Transit, day 4.
Just landed in Vancouver, Canada.
Oh how sweet it is to be back in the greatest country on Earth. I might be slightly biased.
HOW GREAT IS EFFICIENCY says everybody coming back from South America.
I am also desperate for a bed. I had little slept in the last three nights and four days. I am very, very tired. Just one more day before Whitehorse!
I stumbled upon this sentence yesterday: "Living life by simply avoiding boredom is a quite easy (and very fulfilling) way to live creatively."
It is very easy for me to get bored, thus the driving. I drive to forget that I am bore – and quite strangely, it disappear every time. As if doing something would pull me out of boredom. Photography also pulls me out.
Eric keeps on saying (here) : "If black and white bores you, try color. If digital bores you, try film. If 35mm bores you, try medium-format. If shooting your neighborhood bores you, check out a different neighbor- hood. If photography itself bores you, pick up painting or some other artistic form." YES!
Very well said.
The Nikon D800E and the Fuji bores me to death.
I miss having a tool that let me be the photographer.
