Photographing is an internal activity. It is all inside your head. You are the only one seeing what you are seeing and how you are seeing it.
It’s internal until it gets recorded and processed. Now it’s outside in another place other than your brain.
How far does it go? It depends on how far you send it. Some photos don’t go beyond the or the strip of film. Others get pushed out on social media, exhibited or published.
It takes courage to put it out there. To go from internal to external.
