"Non- photography day is an effort on my part to revive the moment by putting down the camera. It is a day to think about how life exists, in essence and not appearance and to understand the inadequacy of the photograph in describing this essence, to bring awareness of the perils of living through the view finder or the display screen"…"This echoed in the streams of images people showed me, the only thing I could grasp from the images was that the person had been present in this location, somehow the stories, the perceived magic of the places never emerged. I concluded that through this use of photography, people’s natural creativity with communication was and is being lost"...
May I offer - Don't force your pictures down anyone's throat -and- not everyone is good at weaving a mental picture in other peoples minds? It's also the difference between the magic of imagination and the science/art of capturing a scene with a camera...
I, for one, love looking at other people's pictures...there is something magical to me about photography...I wouldn't use Flickr otherwise... ;)
Besides, I don't shoot pictures every day...(maybe every other day ;)
