fear and creativity

I agree with this. As I’ve been thinking it over, I realize that the reason I haven’t been creative in the past is because of my own self-consciousness and fear of what I look like or what others will think.

I’m not so afraid now and that’s why I’ve been taking more photos, playing with this hobby of photography.

And creativity has helped me be less fearful. That and praise. But that’s another issue.

    Glad you’ve found an outlet for your “creative side” — and the courage to follow it. Your photography is exceptional!
