embrace imPerfectioN

"Have no fear of perfection, you'll never reach it" - Salvador Dali.  I had to google this, I didn't know it.  It turns out hundreds of people have hung a blog or an image on these lines, so I am certainly not breaking new ground either.  And so what?  Why strive to be the first, the best, the hottest? Dali and a thousand others with the same sentiment can't all be wrong.  Knowing I won't ever be perfect allows me to take photographs in bad light, with aim a bit off centre.  But thats cool because it also gives me permission to delight in fading images, torn or bleeding in the rain.  A paste up coming undone makes me want to touch it and draws me further into it.  I am not even gonna try to end this blog well.  I am just gonna hang the idea out to dry.  Bad metaphor and all.
