Sad Spring

Usually spring is a very exciting time for me but this year it all seems so flat. Even the flowers in my garden that I've so carefully cultivated fail to impress me. I've had the recent discovery that breaking up with someone you weren't seeing is just as hard as breaking up with someone you were seeing.

I've decided to pluck up and keep on going with making photography in whatever way I can. I will not allow myself to be overrun by all the other demands on my time. I will shoot when I can, and forget all about working on the business/self-promoting side of the art- making. I just can't do it right now. If that is as it must be- and it is- I will do what I can, and simply tend to the embers. And hope for the best.


  1. Sometimes this lack of enthusiasm passes.
    Often it's seasonal, like perennials.
    Keep shooting.

    I love your work.

  2. Yeah that breaking up can be as hard as realizing that your seeing someone you didn't think you were seeing. Oh well the life can be surprising and a pain. But glad to hear your sticking with the shooting. On the gardening note since I planted mostly seeds looking at dirt has become my excitement. Oh the anticipation and the disappointments oh the garden. alex

  3. thanks for the encouragement! I'll take it.
