As noted before on this blog, as much as I love photography, it doesn’t pay the bills, so I need to work at one that does. That job consumes most of my waking hours and energy, so when asked why I’m not playing more guitar, mashing the buttons to more video games, reading more books, watching more television, and so on, my usual response is that I have enough free time for half a hobby. Right now, attempting to take the pretty pictures is the thing that most interests me.
It’s the thing that inspires me to roll my groggy behind out of bed pre-sunrise, go somewhere I’ve not been before, and attempt to translate something I see into a worthwhile photograph.
Also, this is post number 1,000 for me on Tumblr. Thanks for coming along for the ride. Thanks for allowing me to engage you in a conversation about what it means to live here, through a medium I grow to appreciate more each day. Hope you’ll stick around for the next thousand posts.
