Creation
As I get oriented to my new home here in Wisconsin I am slowly beginning to take more pictures, and will slowly add them. It has been a long but very good transition. Thank goodness for DA to keep providing me inspiration. I'm hoping to get out some more this weekend to explore and take pictures. There are so many beautiful places here I'm not sure where to start. A little bit of traveling will help. I do miss all the folks back in Iowa. Onward!

Temptations everywhere
I feel inclined to update my journal since I've finally updated a few pictures, but creativity escapes me at the moment. However, I am privileged to be a part of DA where inspiration abounds. I also get weekly emails from the Digital Photography School who has an article of "53 Weekly Themes for Your 2011" to help with inspiration. http://www.digital-photography-school.com/53-weekly-themes-for-your-2011-project-365 Next week, beginning the 23rd, the theme is Temptation. So I thought I'd feature a few choice morsels from around DA on this theme. Perhaps I too will now be tempted to go build upon this theme, and others to come. :thumb20917569

Lazy
Here I sit on the last day of the year, wondering how to spend the day in my new home, in my new town. I am surrounded by boxes and possessions mostly serving as placeholders while we figure out where their permanent homes should be. At the moment I am unmotivated make decisions of this magnitude. Larry just informed me that there was a lonely nap out there somewhere that needed company and he has gone to find it. I'm entertaining the idea of finding one myself. Then again, that requires a change in direction and my inertia has me playing on the computer. I edited a picture this morning - the first in a very long time. I've never used Adobe

Moving on and hoping to be around more - virtually
I can't believe it has been almost a year since I last posted a journal entry. It hasn't been for lack of things going on. Rather than looking back seeing all the pictures I haven't taken and edited, I will instead focus on the future. I am moving to Madison, Wisconsin next week to take a tech support job in a health insurance company. I got confirmation today that we can move into our new apartment on Tuesday, and I start work Wednesday. I have heard nothing but good things about both Madison and the company I am going to be working for so I'm very excited. I can't say I am sad to be leaving Iowa, just my friends. I am going to still be aro

October Down
After the last journal, are you thinking, huh? I have been light on my picture taking of late, as I'm sure you've noticed. These posted just recently are from my trip to Florida in October for work. Happily I had time to wander around the Keys and snap some pictures with my little camera. After quitting my night job in October I was so gleefully happy to not have to spend every night on the computer anymore. As a result editing pictures has fallen by the wayside. Now the urge is beginning to strike once more so I shall endeavor to catch up again. Just in time for spring to bring the camera out. Spring of the world. Spring of my photography
