It’s been a year since Wing picked up a camera, and delved into photography. I am so glad that I, and many of his friends, bullied/cajoled/persuaded him not to give up after that jackass (dare I say) instruction dismissed him and insulted his camera kit. On a personal note, I would still like to swat that arrogant asshole just once.
But I digress:
Wing has made great strides in his photography. But he has this one personality quirk that I think I have actually cracked a tooth grinding my teeth over. If I give him construction criticism, he has no problem with it. Dare I give him a compliment well deserved, he dismisses it in a rather condescending manner, as if what I said has no merit. I have to admit, I got miffed and politely .. ok, not so politely, ripped into him verbally about it. “If you accept my criticism, you have to accept a compliment. I love you, but I’m not going to lie to you if something is bad.” So, now he takes the compliments, with a bit of embarassment, but at least he is no longer dismissing it out of hand.
And for a bit of photography:
Dragons’ Head Cloud: The only editing done was removing a tree branch from right side of the photo.
