or a photojournalist. i have an eye and can take a decent picture (a skill i am beginning to sharpen), but i will likely not ever be any kind of photographic genius. which makes me glad that there are people in the world who are.
i often wish i could hop on a plane and do exactly what photographer lana slezic did when she traveled around afghanistan, photographing and living with the women there. she has an amazing book of photographs, which is now officially on my wish list.
i am really taken with the color and compositions of the photographs, as well as their startling, beautiful content.
