...continued from Can you teach photography
So what can be taught and how? I think we need to start with an analysis of what it takes to be a good photographer. Of course, there's no one size fits all answer to that because every photographer is different, different strengths and completely different view of the world. Give ten photographers the same subject matter or location and ask them to photograph it and you'll get ten completely different takes, technics and styles
OK, so what do they all have in common? Assuming they have anything in common. The only thing they have in common as far as I know is they all "see" in pictures, or at least, I think they do, I know I do. Everywhere I go I see pictures, walking down the street, in the bath, even during the most intimate of personal interactions I see pictures. I used to compose the sights I see in everyday life into pictures and store them away for another day, but now I just see the pictures in an almost finished form and don't bother storing them away as my memory was becoming seriously overloaded.
The challenge then is to record what I see in the way I see it, or at least as close as possible. Digital cameras in many instances help that process as the technical aspects of taking a picture are greatly enhanced with digital equipment. But a digital camera no matter how technically advanced won't make you creative.

These are the dog days of recovery, the slog when nothing seems to change, no light at the end of the tunnel. Can only hope what I do now will stand me in good stead sometime in the summer. Heading for the first outpatient appointment with the surgical team to review the scans and X-rays and find out if I will walk again.

For the cyclist in your life
It's important to remember when buying gifts for cyclists they're fanatics. It comes with the territorial. Don't expect them to be normal. To them, cycling 27km. up a mountain for no apparent reason is normal, they do it to stay normal, at least on the outside.
They do it for the challenge, they do it because they can, for the thrill of it, for the buzz. They do it for the incredible sense of elation that comes with being in the middle of a landscape so impressive it takes your breath away. To know without a shadow of a doubt that this is a good day, a great day, a day that counts. Who doesn’t want that in their life?
