Photographer’s Notes
I’ve got a killer schedule right now. I’m behind on everything. Christmas is coming and I’ve done nothing to prepare. I set aside a few hours Thursday afternoon to shoot and I got some things I liked. My WPL team is less than thrilled with any of it.

But, I have an image that speaks to me at this time in my situation. So I’m going to use it.

I like the contrast between the merry-go-round (which should be spinning but isn't) and the people who should be still (but aren't). A metaphor for the Christmas season in the modern world, perhaps.

In the Matrix, spoon boy says, 'It is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.' So paraphrasing, I get my title.

Maybe I think too much.
