Evolving While Aging

My photography will be slower, not as frequent going forward, at least until spring.  I haven’t figured out what I can do differently.  Since I haven’t found anything new to photograph, I will most likely continue photographing a range of subjects and changing the styles based on whatever I see.  These will mostly be common everyday sights around me as I don’t travel much, if any, anymore.

One thing that is almost certain; I won’t be changing cameras as often due to the cost.  I intend to use what I have and try to get better at using them.  While it is not easy for me to find new things to photograph, I will try to find unique views of the everyday common scenes around me.  My intent is to make my views of them available to others who couldn’t, or didn’t, see them as I did.

It is inevitable that eventually my photography will slow down, i.e. be less frequent, and even slowly change.  This is a natural occurrence as I run out of ideas about how to photograph the same everyday things, and the scope of what I photograph will collapse in range as I age.

As I have mentioned before, I would like to work with some of my existing photographs and create some photo books.  As I do that, I am not sure about my blogging.  In general, it seems that the age of personal blogs is slowly declining and I’m not sure that there is much reason or interest for me to continue forever.  I will work on some books and then see how my blogging evolves.  I have gotten in the habit of taking pictures and displaying them frequently, so I will likely continue, at least for a while longer.
