Update my blog . . . work on some photos . . . go get comfy and settle in with a good book ??? The answer, although seemingly apparent, is actually all three. I found myself thinking the other day that I was losing it. You know, the creative flow. I sat down to work on some photos. I should have known from the start, when none of my photos “hit me”, that any attempt (at that moment) to try a new technique or two would be futile. This just led to frustration and a panicky feeling that a slump was setting in; was the new job and schedule was somehow to blame because I could no longer just drop whatever I was doing and switch gears?
Well the short of it is (partially because I still have two things on that list to get to) is that the creativity doesn’t only occur when I am sitting here at my computer. I have a couple hundred photos that I’ve uploaded since my last post to attest to that. Actually, I’ve been really enjoying being behind the camera shooting a real hodge-podge of things from Prom photos, to flowers, to snakes in my yard (with photos to follow . . . hopefully soon). But I’ve also been working on getting things printed (whoo-hoo, finally got my printer to print note cards just the way I want them), been part of an exhibit/art show, and having a whole lot of fun sharing what I know . . . all requiring an element of creativity. Maybe not that “artistic” kind, but creativity just the same.
Nope, no slump here . . . and now moving on to #2 🙂
