When I first started photography years ago, it was just me, my first point'n'shoot camera and a head full of optimism.
Fast forward to the present and I can say I have met a lot of people on this journey. Some whom have impacted my life in such a positive way...but sadly, an even bigger majority of individuals who view photography as a competition, verbally putting down others in their way to make themselves feel better about their "work", creating false accusations and slander.
This photo depicts me adding to the down pour of negativity in a fragile state. Creating more clouds, rain, self doubt and tension when someone decides to take a stab at me. It can be hard in this "industry" but I guess thats life...that's people... always trying to put themselves on the pedestal.
My hope, is that I can add to my list of positive people in my life.

To everyone else, please...don't rain on my parade.

LOVE LOVE this !! I completely agree... it's as those you took the words right out of my mouth! I'm dealin' with an individual that views other good photographers as competition. We should all be here to inspire and motivate! That's my daily goal :):)
Thank you for the post and true words! Love this to bits !!! You inspire me! :):)

There's no parade to rain on! In fact rain is a life giver. This is a fantastic self portrait, well done!
