A winter break is in order and I will be signing off of blogging and social media until the first of the new year. I need a break to gather thoughts and work on my craft. My winters are usually a time of change, and when I emerge from this one, I’d like to know which direction I’ll be heading. I love the interaction that social media provides. I can browse through a Facebook or Google+ stream and be inspired, learn something new, and stay up to date with loved ones as well. But it does consume minutes and hours and with so few hours of daylight, my time seems very compressed during this part of the year. I have so many items on my to-do list right now and it is just time to get to work. I have lighting to learn, projects to piece together, and a business that needs some direction. I have a crapload of photos on my hard drive that need some organizational attention. I want to study – really study – the work of some of the photographers I consider masters of their craft. These are all things I have put off for these darker winter months and I am simply ready to get down to it.
Simplify. Simplify. Simplify.
I’ll be back invading your streams in the near future, hopefully with some worthwhile things to share.
For now, a photo of a dawn near the Chalk Cliffs of Mount Princeton, an October or so ago. I really miss the mountains and hope that 2014 affords me the chance to get back west.
