My Photo Editor Mind - Where have all the relationships gone?
Wednesday, March 23, 2016
I think the one thing I miss about working at a newspaper is the relationships that grew out of it – from photographers to page designers and everyone in between. So sitting in my home office alone facing my computer isn’t quite as enjoyable. My cats are not very talkative, they kind of sleep all day, though one always stays in my office while I’m working. Once the work started coming in, the relationships started to build. Maybe it’s because I'm on the phone, but I swear I’m telling people things about myself I don't normally share in person – and they are sharing their lives with me. Even though the conversations start with the images, the conversations take off from there. I feel I’ve had great “life” conversations. I think this may work out after all.
