      A very interesting read. I often have thoughts about labels and what impact & restrictions they put on yourself. I ask, am I a landscape photographer? I do take pictures of landscapes, but I also take abstracts and still life. I feel more comfortable with just 'Photographer". Why? Because that's what I like doing, photography. Will look forward to your future blogs

        That is how it also started for me...am I a landscape photographer? But we 'evolve' and those labels others and more often we even put on ourselves should never stop us from doing what we really want. I thought it was easy to ignore those labels but when I got rid of one I just added another and another...at least now I feel that the latest ones don't limit myself ;-). We all need to find the 'labels' we feel happy with. Good that you found yours...for now ;-)

      What a great read Isabel. I love the thought on not giving yourself labels. I guess for me "guy with a camera" is out??? You know I am joking. You always give me so much to think about

        How about "probably guy - sometimes with, sometimes without a camera or other..."

      I love when you say ' The only thing I want to be is creative and ME' :-) It has been great seeing you evolve and seeing how this is also expressed through your website design. I love also that you are not afraid to change direction and to try new things...how you are always exploring...your inner self and also your creativity...exploring new ways to express what you feel and how you see.

        Thank you so much, John. Yes, lots has happened especially during the last few years since we met over on you know where ;-) :-) Not exploring but stagnating is one of the worst things I could imagine...

      i think your limiting yourself...again? in my book creative relates to a process Cooking, Poet business woman, wife. i see you as being an abstract. i'll bet you see, feel and understand things that others don't and can't and sometimes pass some of these along to others through your media. The use of the chop furthered this for me. My thoughts are to limit your self to one word of two letters ME. No this won't fly in many situations but use it openly where your comfortable. Disclaimer: It's early for me and not as some have suggested in liquor or drugs i just have a mind that wanders. j

        I guess most words will always be limiting to an extent as they try to describe something which reduces it from everything to something less than that... I currently don't feel limited caling myself a Creative as for me it describes my thought process more than the actual practical process but includes that as well. Let's see where it will lead me. :-) But you are definitely right anout the ME...and there is actually a blog post in the 'thinking' about something related to that ;-) I like these rather abstract conversations with 'wandering minds... :-)
