He talked a lot about a certain way of seeing, which I think it takes discipline to use, and which I think we actually frequently work against simply by being on the internet, and discussing photographic subjects. I think we end up trying to (in good situations) pease one another, or (in bad situations) top one another. Thing is, our priorities aren't with the joy and discipline of photographic expression, they're with conforming to the internet's idea of what we should be doing.
I say, hang the expectations. Follow whatever means of photographic self-expression is the most meaningful to you.
