Hanging it Up

210919-100252-JEH21I’m hanging up my blogging, for at least a while.

I’m still making images and trying some other cameras and lenses, etc.; but, since I’m just making test shots and trying different gear and not going anywhere new or seeing anything new, I’m not making images suitable for publication.

I hope to return to posting new images after I decide what camera and what lenses and what processing I want to use in the future, as well as why I will be posting.  Making that decision depends on why and what I will be photographing so I have no idea of how long it will be, but I’m hoping it won’t be too long.

My overriding issue is that I haven’t been going anywhere due to Covid-19, and I have already photographed everything, other than people, at Homewood at Plum Creek where I live.  Living under these conditions makes photography as a hobby pretty near impossible.  Trying to continue with my photography as I have been doing has gotten to the point where it is not an enjoyable or viable hobby or rewarding activity.  I would therefore like to shift my emphasis for my blog and photography in new directions other than just playing around with different cameras and lenses and processes or styles.

    I can relate to what you are saying and wish you well, but I will miss your posts in the meantime. It has indeed been a challenging year and a half for all because of Covid considerations. Good luck finding a new normal that fits you like a kid glove. Best, Babsje

        Sorry John, I didn’t think country borders had anything to do with the beauty of flowers. I will not comment again.

        Well, it is more than that. When we stopped have events that I could photograph, I sold cameras and lenses. I now have another camera, but I don’t have a long enough lens to photograph flowers up on your balcony. I’m working on trying to decide what I want to photograph and what lenses I would need and whether or not it is worth spending over a thousand dollars for a long zoom lens. If you have noticed, I have only been making images of flowers up close.
