I haven’t been terribly active with photography over the last few months, but I don’t think I’m too worried about it. I think there’s a natural wax and wane that comes part and parcel with creative endeavors.
I’m comforted in part by my experience as a musician. I’ve been active in music for a long time, much longer in fact than I’ve been active in photography. Over the many years that I’ve played music, there have been many stretches lasting months or even years where I was not very active with music at all. During those times, I never once doubted that playing music remained a strong part of me, and indeed all of those stretches came around full circle back to being active in music, including being so even today.
I’m pretty sure photography is in my bones now. I don’t think I could not be a photographer even if I wanted to. The wax and wane just is part of living a creative life.
