Sometimes I have to start small to get in the routine of doing something good. I was looking at a number of talented people near the end of the year and how they have posted their favorite photo of the month for 2019 or significant projects.

Steps to Where? Photo by Mike Hartley

When I started looking at my photos by month I realized I was using a number of older photos that I had in my library of images taken before I started blogging regularly. I’m not saying that is a bad thing or they don’t count, but I started this to promote shooting more.

So tonight I begin again anew. Well those are pretty words aren’t they? More like “about time I got my ass in gear” would be more appropriate. So I’m going to try to grab a few frames this evening and keep shooting every day of my life. I’ve let myself get lazy and not think like a young man where everywhere you look is a good opportunity for an image.

When my mind is right, photography is a joy and ease. When its cluttered with issues and troubles it’s hard to see the opportunities. So here is to keeping the mind free of those stresses.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Mondays are always the roughest day of the week for me. In one way that is good. The rest of the week is cake.
  • My old camera is starting to show its age. Just like its owner.
  • I’ve gotten used to working alone. Even though I consider myself a social person I bet I’d have a few issues working in a populated office.
  • I’m in love with so many people. Life is great.

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.
