This is a chapter from the book A Lesser Photographer.
The one antidote for the jealousy that leads to the obsessive buying of gear and chasing of fame is gratitude.
The fact we have the gear we already have, vision clear enough to appreciate beauty, and the knowledge to capture it makes photographers the luckiest people in the world.
While others let beauty pass them by, we recognize it, experience it, and share it with the world.
Is there a better way to fully live a life?
