Looking Back at 2021

I used 14 different cameras in 2021, but I didn’t own some of them since I was just trying them.  Of those 14 cameras, I now only have three.

I used 22 different lenses, but now I only have six.

In 2021 my most used camera was the Pentax K-3 III; but, primarily it was because I used it while outside of the community where I live.  I used the Pentax while on the streets of Hanover and while on trips in the states of West Virginia and Virginia.

I no longer have the Pentax K-3 III camera and lenses.  I sold them and I’m still hoping I don’t end up regretting it too much.  The K-3 III was the heaviest and largest of the cameras that I used since 2019 and that is why I sold it, even though I loved it.  I will turn 80 in 2022 and I thought it was time to give up my long history of owning various heavy Pentax cameras; but, did I sell prematurely?

In each of the years of 2020 and 2021 I made less than half as many images each year as I made in 2019, and 2019 was lower than previous years.  My photography has been winding down, year by year, and I expect that to continue to be the case for 2022.

At the end of 2021 I maxed out my online storage for my website.  I had to pay a lot more to jump into the next category for more memory.  That has caused me to rethink why I’m blogging and what I can do with it.  I’m currently considering trashing some or all of my older posts, and maybe starting over, or stopping.

I’m not happy with how 2021 evolved and I’m hoping for some changes in 2022.  I want to do something different, even for just the sake of change.
