The moment you cheat…

The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you’re an artist. – David Hockney

Without a doubt, I miss my camera. Since finding out the reason for the delay, though, I feel badly for ever making a fuss. Nikon was a company hard hit by the tsunami in Japan. If a large company is feeling the effects months after, imagine the people there. Their entire world has changed.

My camera and I can wait.

I am interested in continuing my blog, so I have been using photos from my archives to keep the blog active. I wasn’t technically “cheating” – I wasn’t hiding the source and they are my photos. This cheating does not make me an artist, but the quote exemplifies what one will do to keep their artistic interests moving along.
