Confessions of a Blogger
I took 56 pictures of these cookies.
Thank goodness for digital cameras.
See, there was no sunlight this morning and the flash was doing me wrong. My cookies looked sickly. And, really, they are anything but. But I kept snapping, thinking: well, maybe this angle is THE angle.
What is it in us that clicks with aesthetics? WHY does one look better than another? Sometimes I think I do most of my creative stuff by feel. When it feels right, I've got it. I know some creative principals and they are helpful and useful, but the fact that there are creative principals seems so wild to me. It seems contradictory. Rules for creativity. Isn't creativity where we shirk rules? Save that stuff for math and science?
I guess not.
But I have always been one to thrive within boundaries.
