creative hibernation.

The blog side of my life has been quiet for the last few months, however in reality, my life has been off the rails. I feel like I’ve been away more than I’ve been home over the past few months. I become anxious in my downtime, afraid that I’m forgetting I should be somewhere instead of basking in the hard earned, rare relaxation time. I drove my brand new car out of the showroom in June and when I put it away a month ago, it had 24,506kms on it to give you an idea of how much I’ve been doing lately. My daily commute to my 9-5 job is about 22kms round trip. I have been non-stop and this is the first month in a while that I can agree to meet up with my friends for dinner or a drive, see my family for more than an hour at a time and not have to schedule in a visit with them between shooting for clients. I’m not complaining – I’ve loved all that I’ve accomplished this year, but I would have loved a little more downtime. I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to scheduling though – I hate to say no. I’ve loved meeting all the new families that I’ve worked with and I’ve enjoyed watching my work evolve each and every year.

It’s been months since I’ve taken photos for myself. I finally pulled myself out of the slump I had fallen into and found a few decent frames to shoot today on my way home. I’m also trying to ease myself back into the habit of blogging as I leave for my Australia expedition on the 29th and hope to blog more often than once every several months.

This post isn’t much, but it’s a start. Hopefully it will pull me out of my hibernation.

DSC_9969I’ve captured this photo a few times before – this time with the intention of showcasing 4 seasons. Unfortunately, it being December 13th and around 10 degrees, this isn’t a typical winter photo. 6 stitch pano of Lower Boylston Park.

DSC_0133One of the things we are most proud of this year is our new truck. She’ll go anywhere and look damn fine doing it, too.

And finally, the shot of the day – Lundy Fire Tower look off. Although this has always been in my backyard, literally, I have rarely gone up there and yet, it still steals my breath every time. It has complete panoramic views of my hometown. Stunning no matter what time of year you visit.
