I’m going off the reservation here for this post because I’ve read these two books and would suggest you consider them as well. They have nothing to do with photography other than the dedication it takes to pursue your dream, and what is required in time and effort.
First, “Martin Eden,” by Jack London. Martin wants to be a writer and lacks many of the tools to get the job done.
Second, the first in a series of three novels by, R.F. Delderfield, “God is an Englishman.” Follow Adam Swann – a returning British Soldier as he sets his sights on becoming a presence in commerce and trade in Britian’s 1850’s and beyond.
We all need inspiration to pursue our dreams. So, do yourself a favor and, at least, allow a review of these two novels. I think you’ll be inspired – as I was.
