D-117 Practice . . .

Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”
Martha Graham

How many times are you willing try something and perfect a new technique? Whether it be in photography or anything you are trying to perfect. Do you practice, practice, practice or do you give up?

Studio shots - "peppers"
Which one do you like best?

Great shots and great message today. I feel like I practiced that philosophy when I did my smoke trails series... over and over. So glad you're part of Twitter Tuesday!
