Back again. For now.
Seems like it has been forever since I’ve written a post. Probably because it has been a long time since I last posted something.
I unintentionally took some time off from full-scale blogging. There were two primary reasons for this.
First was just raw time. My time off from work created a backlog that saddled me with a lot of long hours. Combine this with the fact that the last few weeks of the year tends to be incredibly busy in my line of work (after all, we have to get presents on the sleigh 😉 ) and I found I didn’t have a lot of time to spend writing, revising, and clicking the publish button.
But the second is that this blog is driven by my going out and shooting images and I spent a lot of time in November and December not going out and shooting images. I did make it out for a single shoot in December, but while it was a good shoot there were too many other things that kept my attention to sit down to write a proper blog post.
So the holidays are now over, the work load has dropped a bit, and I am recovering from a couple of weeks away from the homestead. Five days of driving combined with five days with family and friends. It was a great trip, but the two days driving back has left me very tired and very sore. I’ve once again made some goals for the new year, but I still have to look back at 2012. Once I get some sleep I’m going to hop on those topics to start 2013.
Have a safe holiday, y’all. Watch out for the other guy–if he’s not drunk he’s probably texting.
About the Image:
This Common Checkered-Skipper (Pyrgus communis) was part of the treasure trove of images I brought home from Mitchell Lake Audubon Center in San Antonio, Texas, during my single shoot in December. It was a good shoot as you can see from my images over at Flickr. As usual, the Standard Gear was employed. Technical data was ISO 400, 1/100th at f/11.
