A recent image: proof I still get out from time to time.
I'll admit it. I avoid my blog. I avoid it like the dishes in the sink or the junk mail on the kitchen counter. I started this blog a few years ago because I thought that was something any self-respecting photographer should do. And years ago, it was one of the main ways to socialize on the internet.
Nowadays, there is Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Google+, LinkedIn, etc, etc, etc. As well, I somehow feel compelled to write about something "important". Like my blog is the doorway to some serious photography discourse. And it just shouldn't be that way.
So, where have I been? I've been busy, not busy, in a funk, uninspired, totally inspired, happy, sad, and occasionally, I get out and use my camera. Oh yeah! I got a new camera. My D300 went into a circular service nightmare where it traveled around the state of California in UPS or FedEx boxes for three months before I finally called off the whole ordeal. $800 to replace the sensor was the verdict, and I couldn't go through with it.
The good news was, I must have had some foresight into this debacle, and I purchased a D7000 the day I sent my D300 off on its multi-thousand mile journey. But alas, the D7000 is now with Nikon's service department after only five months of use. Over ten years of using Nikon, and I think I got my first "lemon". Not 100% on this, but I will update the blog (I promise) once I have more information.
I will find the time to randomly update the blog as much as I can. Photos, gear, techniques, workshop info, random thoughts, you name it.
I realize I may have lost my audience here, but for those of you hardy enough to still stick around, what would you like to see my blog turn into? Portfolio? Equipment reviews? Techniques? Tutorials? Let me know!
