Hope the scene one day returns to the vibrant creative community it once was - I miss that.
I, too, really miss the old scene and those involved in it on both sides of the lens who shot primarily to be creative rather than to exploit the other party.
Fortunately my photographic mojo does not depend on snapping models so I seldom lose it for more than a few hours.
Over the last ten days I have been fortunate to have taken over 6,500 images of everything from soldiers and military vehicles to civilian ambulances and operating theatre teams to a President so my mojo probably needs holding back at the moment, but while on that epic overseas assignment I still pointed my lens at trains and a church just because they were there and they caught my eye.
It really doesn't take a pretty young thing to fan my photographic mojo into action, but it would be nice if a few more models were more interested in shooting for art / creativity than in just emptying wallets.
On those occasions where I do need a good model for publication work I'm blessed in having that consumate professional victoriasummers only a phone call and half an hour's drive away, but it would be great to think that there were a few more like her on the scene to make it more vibrant again.
