Last year was not my best year in photography. I’m not sure why, but that’s the way it is. I realize now that I was suffering from photographer’s block. It’s not that there wasn’t anything to shoot, I just wasn’t inspired to shoot. I was tired of the same old same old landscapes and trips through my town. I also really think I had a mini identity crisis with my photography. My interests mainly lie with the old: houses, architecture, historical places. Looking back on my work in 2011 I can see that I neglected my real interests in pursuit of something that I thought I wanted. I was kidding around recently with my friend Donna that last year I wanted to be the wedding photographer and I wasn’t sure what I was aiming for this year.
Now that the problem has been identified, I feel renewed. It was a light bulb above the head moment. I know what I love to shoot and I already have a few place in mind. Some new places. Something that will get the creative juices flowing.
So, I am going to turn this neglected blog into a thing of beauty real soon!
I hope everyone will enjoy my work of 2012!!
