Yes, it's been a while...
I've been mostly absent from for some time now for a variety of reasons. Chief among them has been the changing nature of my job and work. The job was and to an extent still is evolving. A title change a few months ago, accompanied by new and expanded duties have contributed, and much of December was spent moving my office from what had been my home-away-from-home for 15 years to a new office. But now things are settling there, and it's good.
I was also doing a significant amount of freelance work over the last 2-3 years that had me on the road a good deal. But that, too, has also moderated.
What I've missed the most in my life during that time is photography. I was still getting out on occasion to take photos, but unfortunately doing very little with them outside of the shoots being a mere exercise. Now, I hope to get back on track.
New photos are coming, new ideas are happening in post-processing. For those that would criticize the use of art techniques to enhance photos, I would say:
1. By and large, I'm not doing snapshots or photojournalism
2. I desire to share what I see in my mind, not necessarily just that which the camera lens captures
Thanks to all that have inquired as to my whereabouts and well-being. I appreciate the love. And I hope my work continues to interest and intrigue...
