What's Been In Front of Me

I honestly can't remember the last time I've stepped outside without my camera around my shoulder in the last 3 years. Sad to say, I didn't really shoot that much for the amount of tissue damage I've probably done to my shoulder. I had to dwell on technical stuff, but I think it had something to do with my old camera and knowing that when I made a frame it wouldn't turn out quite as nice as I wanted it to just because the old 30D just wasn't making the cut anymore. I just feel a little more confident shooting again with a camera that has such nice quality. Now the only pressure is if I can't make a nice frame I can't blame it on my camera.
I've been trying to let go a bit. For a while I've had a mindset when I go out to shoot: whatever I would normally shoot, shoot the exact opposite, or shoot something as oddly as possible. I don't really know if it has shown in my work or if I've really been successful at it yet, but I'm trying. The world is a strange and beautiful place filled with equally strange and beautiful people I'm finding, so I figure I might as well shoot things how they really are, or at least how I see things in my mind.
