Worth a look
Emmy loves meeting new people, says German photographer Mario Wezel of the five-year-old girl whom he documented every other day throughout her kindergarden school year. From his time with her, the photographer discovered that Emmy has the rare ability of taking in the world slowly, of becoming absorbed in fully her present surroundings, without making prejudgements or assumptions. Emmy also happens to have been born with Down syndrome.

This is interesting.  I have a goddaughter with Downs.  I initially considered an ongoing documentary myself, with the aim that photography could record how perfectly normal I believe her childhood and adult life can and will be.  Ultimately, for me, I decided the very act of documenting the child's life was, in and of itself, a flashing red sign that I was seeing her as "different."

My project ended before it began.

I do think documentary like this serves a greater good by informing.  In the end, I just didn't want my own loved one to feel like a "subject" any more than I wanted to allow myself another moment of viewing her as such.  :-)   

I photograph her no more and no less than other family, with hopefully similar motivations.

No doubt that some can live in this sphere but from my own experience and observing others, what Guy says below is very true. I've been thinking much lately about my own photographic work. Often I feel a fraud calling it work, I'm not a professional. But it is work, lots of hours spent in joy, studying and shooting. It's still work if you like it. Lots of studying leads to reading a lot of other's work and experiences, seeing their photos. Maybe it's human nature to become competitive. Are we hard wired to win the contest? Perhaps. In saying this, how much of your photographic journey are you enjoying? Is it the win or the wander you like most? Personally, I'd like to live a photographic life as expressed below, but I feel I may have strayed. 

Evasive maneuvers, Mr. Sulu

"A distinction I do not particularly care to earn is "award winning." One of the most pervasive and harmful effects of competition is the mindset that it is more important to strive to be better than others, by the arbitrary opinion of someone else, than to simply make yourself into the best that you can be. It implies placing greater importance on how others perceive you than on the personal rewards of creative work, and to bind your perception of your self to such opinions rather than to trust your own. In that sense, it is relinquishing control of your own self worth and enjoyment of photography, handing it off to others for the small chance of a short lived moment of fame."

Anyone else having odd issues with Lightroom CC? After upgrading, when in develop mode, every minute LR wants to refresh the image. Resulting in reverting whatever I did in that last minute. I've Googled the issue but haven't had any luck finding others. Thought I'd ask. Frustrating.

Why I buy from Sunset Audi is because John Frentsos takes care of me. Any issues I've had with service in the past were taken care of by the service manager as well as John being aware and ensuring things were being taken care of. I've leased several from them and will continue! Even if the Tesla is looking exciting. Yet expensive. =\

The decision of where to place your child for education and care is a big one. I must have looked at 20 different programs before deciding on the Goddard. With a great endorsement from a family member and her child across the country, I felt good about trying out the Goddard School. Once we met Michelle Solari and her staff, we felt comfortable right off the bat. Granted, it's a new school that my son is attending but I can tell this staff has great attention to detail and cares about my little one. Glad we switched to The Goddard.
