This is the best photo ever.

The blog post is pretty great too.
It's hard to focus on our strengths when we live in a world where everyone has an opinion. So we tend to focus on our weaknesses. Gini Dietrich has more.

Autumn in New York City (a look back: info below)


Today was an absolutely perfect autumn day. The air was crisp, the sun exuded a cool warmth, and the sunlight pierced the pavement.

This time of year always makes me incredibly nostalgic. It was the autumn of 2009 that I found my passion for photography. I would walk as far as my legs would take me with my little point and shoot camera which was severely limited in its capacity. I was too poor for a smartphone at the time and remember hoping that the no-frills point and shoot that I bought on sale for $79 could help me capture the city I love in photographs.

These photos accompany a post with TONS of New York City autumn photos (and I mean TONS) here:

I went through quite a few of those early photos today for a client who found one of the photos on my Flickr account. I keep all of my work on my Flickr account, even the early work. It's amazing how far some of those early photos have gone. Not all of my early work is what I would consider good. In fact, most of my early work is rough in terms of execution of what I was attempting to do with the limited tools I had at the time. 

It's important to keep a record of where we have been in life. It helps to put everything in perspective. Most importantly, it helps to track growth and learning. 

I wanted to share a few of my photos from that magical autumn of 2009, 

I can still feel every aspect of each moment I captured with my camera when I look at these...

There's a reason you work better in the coffee shop, and it's not because of the caffeine.

There’s nothing wrong with passive voice, but active sentences tend to be shorter and punchier. #copywriting  
Dear passive voice, we’re sorry. It seems like every time anyone decides to issue some advice on how to be a better business or marketing writer, they single you out for blame.
