Changes were just days away
(I found this last winter, in New Mexico, just a few days before a blizzard hit. The clouds seemed to know something was up.)
Today marks the end of eight years of posting a daily image on a blog, and the end of five years here at WordPress. As I’ve mentioned before, I started the blog on a whim, with a fragile commitment to photography and complete ignorance about where a blog could lead me.
I am still sort of ignorant about where a blog could lead me – even though some amazing things have happened because of it – but it’s pretty safe to say that my commitment to photography is solid and life-long. I’ve dabbled in other things before. I was going to be a Poet! I was going to be a Memoirist! And some other things that I’ve either forgotten or am to embarrassed to mention. But somehow, it was photography that stuck. I truly never saw it coming.
This was a good year for me, photographically speaking. I got some stuff in some shows. I sold a few things. I made more friends here on the blog. I honed my craft.
And so, on the eve of beginning my ninth year, my gratitude goes out to all of you who take the time to visit the blog, and when you feel inspired, to leave a comment for me. If it weren’t for all of you, I’d’ve given up a long time ago.
Let’s see where 2017 will take us!
