Goodness, it takes a lot of work to make a high-res photo look low-res.

I, too, will learn to switch off my mind one day.
Photography has never been a method of documentation for me, but a reflection of raw feelings and sensations born out of my experiences. This is why I only trust my libido—instead of “thinking” about photography, which is something I completely gave up some time ago. I don’t analyze the situation; I capture the moment.
As you delve deeper into photography, you’ll realize that not everyone will like your output. Everyone is an expert, and always has a flaw to point out in your work.
But life is flawed, and there is really no point in stating the obvious. You’ll never really be able to create a flawless shot, but you can always create a photo that makes sense and tells a story. Your story.
So let the haters hate, the potatoes potate, and just keep shooting.
The Importance of Keeping Your Camera Nearby
Yesterday, I had over 100 photos printed from my travels from over the past half year: photos of places I visited, of all the new friends I’d made, and just a bunch of other happy snaps. In the process of choosing which photos would be printed, I went through probably thousands of photos on my computer, reliving so many great memories caught by my trusty Olympus which might have otherwise been lost to time. And then it hit home to me - the secret really is to shoot and keep shooting: yes, we’re all on a hunt to get “that great photo”, but by taking lots of shots, however grand or mundane, not only are you getting plenty of practice but you’re also creating memories which you’ll look back and smile on at some time in the future. OK so some of your friends may find it obnoxious at times, but they’ll be grateful for it too later. I promise :)
