Am I the only one that when he hears about places like Tucson, Chicago, and other american cities, is reminded of American movies and TV series? Why do the aliens always decide to invade US cities? As a Spanish man I can’t imagine them invading Madrid and kidnapping our President. :-)
Ok. Jokes aside. Focus, Fran, focus… Well… Lynn Waldrop. Sonora is her editor’s nickname. Yes, you’re right. Like the Arizona desert. . .where the aliens always land their spaceships. What about her? Well… of course I don’t have a favorite editor. They all are awesome. But there’s something about Lynn thats different. Come on guys. Who scrolls the whole tag? I don’t! But Lynn does. I checked. And that’s something I really admire and appreciate. We are a huge community with JJ’ers all around the globe and that means different time zones. Well, you all know what I’m trying to say. And that’s why Lynn tries to give New Zealanders the same chance to be featured as Brazilians or Italians. BTW, @nselmo and @jucamurillo you’re the exceptions. You’re always online!
Now. Here’s Lynn.
“I started in the JJ community & IG back when Josh did weekly challenges. I love having a daily “JJ” theme in my head, like a mantra …blue or leading lines or architecture ect.. It stays w/ me thru out the day to meditate on.
Studying the daily JJ forum really is powerful & opens my mind up to thousands of interpretations & points of view from members who’s entries are all connected thru the theme you feel connection just by participating. Having the opportunity to try editing has enhanced every aspect of my life. It has sharpened my instincts & memory skills, allows me to be open in the moment to recognize what the image is or isn’t communicating in lightning speed this concentrated practice has trained my eye to read my own environment quicker for shots, making my photo work more efficient & direct.
Having sometimes 10,000 or more shots to consider. I take my time & sometimes I go thru the gallery several times. I select several than edit them down to 5 solo selections. Each image in my feed I consider treasure & would purchase to own & promote (if I were a gallery owner w/ a nice big budget:). I believe in these shots with all the atoms in my body. I’m surprised each & everyday what there is to discover & share.
Thank you for the opportunity.”
