Me and wife went on a two day trip on the weekend so I relax before the fully booked week this week. But I never can relax, every time I'm out and about .. I'm always looking for locations. So the relax trip turned in to a location scout trip.
Maybe that's how I rest. Rest my brain from one thing to another. I don't know. I just can't resist in getting something out of every minute of the day. I love travelling, but I never really have a destination. I never plan my trip (wife loves doing that), but for me .. I like to get lost.
You see, for me I never got lost. In order for one to get lost, one needs a destination. Without destination, you can never get lost .. because your trip can never end and not knowing where you are .. that's a part of your trip in itself. I discovered 80% of all the location that I've used for each of my photo shoot because I don't look at where I am. It's like reading a story book from beginning to the end .. it leaves you with very little imagination. But if you read some skip some, you can create your own story that way. Same principle as scouting for a new location, if I look at a map all the time, I'll be discovering nothing .. because I'm looking at the map just like everyone else.
People always asked me about the locations I discovered. You see, I don't mind telling where each of them are but what's the point. Everyone can look at the same place and see different things, everyone have different objectives and approach for their work. Even if you are standing at the same place before me .. you might not see what I saw, shot and posted. Each to their own I guess.
My advise is. Let's get lost :)
