Following My Passion
My greatest regret is not pursing my original career in landscape photography when I went to college. My peers and relatives told me to choose something practical. Really at the time I didn't want to go to college and I wish I just worked for a while and went later. I could've researched what I needed to follow my passion, THEN take the best classes for it. I could've worked for Nat'l Geographic. Maybe done an internship. I could've afforded to have an unpaid job then. Forget it now. Its too late now. I'm too old, I don't have the flexibility and energy I had then. If I had pursued it then, I could've had several years experience by now and been successful at something worthwhile. Now I'm just a failure. I'm still an artist that has never done anything worthwhile and no matter how hard I have worked at those practical jobs, no one has ever noticed my effort.
