January. I haven’t written or posted anything since January. Does anyone still read this? I would love to say I was caught up with work but, I can’t. I just didn’t take as much photos. For the last two years I’ve been in this grey zone stage of my life; not (noticeably) progressing and always in the same place. Yes, I did have some three day ventures (like my trip to Rome) but, when it comes to my everyday life – uneventful and not worth documenting. As if I’m experiencing a slow fade from photography and it scares me.
I’ve been taking photos for more than 10 years now and never have I had such an inspiration crisis. I mean, it all comes down to the overall desert my life has turned into. But, witnessing the current state of the world, with all the tragic stories and horrible terroristic attacks makes me instantly grateful to God for my peaceful and boring life.
Here’s a little update on me. My substitute teaching job ended, after a year and a half I’m unemployed, again. At this point, I’m partially happy about it because I’ll enjoy every bit of summer ahead of me. A few days ago, I turned 31. A month ago, I cut my long hair to a lob. Oh, and I got a puppy and named it Frodo. Yes, J. R. R. Tolkien and all.
It seems to me, it always comes down to shooting everyday things. No matter how hard I try to bring something new to this blog, I simply can not afford traveling all the time. Which would be my dream job; traveling and documenting it on my blog (#jobgoals #spreadtheword).
So, what else can I do, at this point, other than going back to the basics. I can’t promise you majestic mountain shots or amazing trip coverage but, I can promise you to shoot more often. I feel stupid for investing in a website and not using it as I should. Well, let me know what’s up with you and your life? Are you in a good and happy place now? God bless.
