It’s Monday, time to focus

Leave a comment

Is it really Monday? Can’t be Monday already. that means that week of vacation is over. Well, time to focus on the mission at hand. Create and communicate is the task I’ve committed to this 2015. And now that the job that pays the bills is back to taking its ungodly chunk of time out of my week, it will be a challenge to see if I can maintain a 3-5 posts per day goal I set for myself.

The trouble will be keeping up with the visual side to illustrate postings. I have to improve on shooting more each day. So I’ve got myself a shooting schedule and goals list. I’m better when I break things down to task.

I’ve been intimidated a bit about sharing my limited photographic experiences, but thought what the hell, I’m already sharing my amateur images, I’ll give it a shot and see what sticks to the wall this year. So I’ve started to photograph some of the historic toys I’ve used in my 5 decades and prepare a post of some of my experiences along the way. I also hope to do a few post on a few decades spent in photo reproduction on offset.

Plus it scratches my itch to be a better writer and photographer. So bear with me as I try to develop both into a future career.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
