Finished, For Now

I'm sure everyone has given up on me by now, but I did want to post some thoughts and an explanation for my lack of pictures.  The firs year of Photo Dilettante was very fun, and I learned a lot.  Recently I wanted a creative outlet, and decided that having an assignment, like taking pictures each day and posting one, was what I needed to get that creative fix.  But after a couple of months of doing that, I realized that I wasn't having fun, and I wasn't learning anything.

I do still want to work on my photography, and I feel the need for some kind of assignment, but the one picture a day thing isn't going to do it for me.  After a lot of traveling this spring, Mark and Isaac and I are settling in to a weekly routine, and I'm going to be looking for some time within that routine to dedicate to my photography.  I have some ideas for what I want to do, but I'm going to work on it for a while before I share it.  If possible I'd like to take some kind of a class, but that might not work out because of finances.  So, for now, I'm going to look at the work of other photographers for inspiration, and check some books out of the library.  And, I'm going to take pictures, although I'm not sure how often or of what.

So, I'm sorry to those of you who enjoyed checking for new photos each day or so.  Leave a comment if you'd like to know when I have something new to share.  I'll post something on this blog when I have something to direct you to.

I always love your insight. In either words or photos, your view points help me learn about you and feel like we are a little more in touch with you and your family. I would still love a photo or too or an email if it strikes you. We love you all.
