Chains off

Leave a comment

Besides doing some photography of my granddaughter and a few quick grabs here and there, I’ve been chained up in my shooting time. I hate that I let myself slip in shooting regularly.

So today I charge both the camera and my batteries to attack this fresh week. I’ll be out and about shopping in between a very busy week at the job that pays the bills.

I love their breakfast.

But working on my photo site has kind of gotten me recharged on getting new images. One because I can go refine some original ideas and shots I’ve taken with better ones. Sometimes I look at a shot and thought about a better angle or taking it during a different season.

I work on it every day now, adding images, editing and learning the tools. Who knows, in a few years it might be a good launch point for my next career.

Will this be the view tomorrow morning?

Till then I’ll keep plodding along putting up images that I’ll takedown in a while with better ones. But one big bonus also is that now I have my family and friend pictures organized also. I can’t wait to share them with the family. I went back a good number of years.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Wind and Cold when combined equal one of my least favorite things.
  • Getting a Xmas tree late (like today) gives you a more limited selection. I usually have one shortly after the first or by the first weekend in December. I still like it a lot though.
  • OK, it feels like Christmas now. I got my lights in the basement up.
  • Wind and Cold and Snow and Ice, thanks for the nice start to the week.

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.
