For the past three days I have been in New Jersey to attend the confirmation and subsequent dinner party for my niece. Because these types of visits (family) are (for me) rather hectic with little time for creativity I took advantage of the only creative tool I had with me which was my digital camera. At the mall, in restaurants, church, dinner and my sister's house I was rapid snapping of photos. It was fun in a way because it distracted me from the family dynamics which can sometimes be stressful and I also got a fodder of references for painting that I would only have a memory of. Over the course of three days I took 161 photos. Say a good standard of good to unusable photos is a 1 to 10 ratio, I hope to have taken 16 photos that are worth the cost of printing. (Actually I think I'm just under with 15 photos.
