Being thorough and patient often is its own curse. Once you find something you like you end up in a sort of a corner where you have eliminated all other options and nothing else can quite live up to that thing that you found. I often find myself going back to that unfound state, then searching endlessly but always ending up at the same place. Hoping for a different result. Amazed at how amazing everything is but then narrows down to that one thing that is not even that amazing but is close enough. It's just how I am.
You will rarely catch me talking about my personal projects. Its not because I do not like talking about them but because I dont want them to become "work". I just do them because they peek my interest at the time. The last thing I want is somebody to ask me about it every time they see me. Especially when I am not actively in the zone of that project. Some of my projects are really rapid fire, quick stops in the bathroom while others are multi-year collect-a-tons.
There is this one bar that I have been wanting to take a picture of for about a week now. I saw a project on insta. The trick is that the picture only works if the bar is closed. But the place never seems to be closed! I went there on a sunday morning at 8am and it was open with dudes hanging out washing a car in front. I went there on Ash Wednesday at 10am - it was open. 5pm after work and yup - its open. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND!
