I must get serious about blogging.
What a horrible job I have done at keeping up this blog, pathetic comes to mind. I always looked at the blog as an extension that I thought I needed to add to my site. A platform for my sometimes crazy, sometimes humorous, sometimes serious thoughts on why I travel the world with a camera and why I look at photography with the passion I do. Actually it should be a narrative, a behind the scenes of my travels with friends and fellow photographers. I’m lucky to be able to as one friend said to me “Your living the life, my friend”
Not everyone has the ability to do what I do so why not share the moment, not just the images, tell the stories and anecdotes that make a person feel he or she was right there with me.
There will be plenty to talk about this year.
Well it’s January 2013 and I have a new direction in my life, a direction that only retirement can bring. It would be impossible if not down right boring to revisit the 20 plus trips I have taken in the past 11 years. So we will start fresh with 2013. I’m not promising there will not be an occasional trip down memory lane, a chat about a new piece of camera equipment I must HAVE, or a quick bitch session about something I don’t like, but I’ll try and stay the course most of the time and be current.
I have 4 major trips planned this year and hopefully a few that pop up from time to time. The year will begin in 19 days when we fly to Bozeman, Montana for a winter helicopter flight to some high peaks bringing along a special member of the cat family. Stay tuned for that action.
Also planned for this year is a 20 day trip to the desert southwest, a great workshop in Jasper National Park with Chas Glatzer in late October and a short trip to Wapiti, Wyoming in early December for some great big horn sheep in rut. Let the travels begin; follow me throughout the year for some great images and stories.
