Question: When we started our little business a few years ago we were just excited to be working for ourselves. Now it seems like the business is so busy that it owns us. What do we need to do to take back control of our business and our lives?
Answer: Last week I described three stages many business owners go through.
We begin with complete passion. With time and experience we “graduate” to complex sophistication. Too many remain stuck in this stage, feeling trapped and frustrated by a prison of their own design.
The first city police services were established in Philadelphia in 1751. Since that time there have been hundreds of thousands of men and women step into a calling that is now being undermined at every turn.
In recent months and years we have heard of horror stories of police officer shootings. Some the officers may have been at fault. Others the officer wasn’t.
We never really think that this sort of thing is going to happen here. But that is where we are all wrong.
Up until the introduction of color film in the early 1900s, monochromatic photography was the only process available. Color images seemed the only logical choice past that point, however black and white photography is still a viable solution.
Photographers must now debate and question the use of color in photographs.
We can compare two outstanding photographers with one photographing solely in color and the other black and white.
William Eggleston, the former, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, the latter, were responsible for the greatest street photography of their time.
