All Is Well

I spent the entire weekend out shooting.... and well ... I have to say that I am feeling much better. It is like getting a double vitamin shot. The best part is that I came home with a few good shots. I think that is the key for me. Yes.... it is great to be out taking shots, being creative, waiting for birds in a quiet place, and getting a sunset. Those things do feel great. But the ultimate is to do all those things and come away with a prize. I feel that I acheived that this weekend.
So....Even though I will be working this next week, I will at least start the week with a smile.
Hope everyone else has a great week too.

Here is a Note from the Universe by Mike Dooley:

Get out, get out, get out even more, Beth! Because there are people you've yet to meet, laughs you've yet to share, stories you've yet to live, and riches you've yet to tap into, that will not find you under any other circumstances.

Besides, how else can I shower you with surprises?

Fallen Off The Photography Planet

For what seems like a long time, but really isn't..... I have not been able to devote my time to my most precious love ... Photography and Nature. My work schedule has limited my time to be out and it seems to be getting to me. Like most people, when I am tired, my perspective changes. That seems to be happening these days for me. I am not in my happy place. I have been really very down lately. I know better.... that things will get better..... they always do, but when you are in a bad space, it is hard to see beyond at times.
It feels like I have fallen off the photography planet. I am out of touch with the friends I love to go shooting with and that feels pretty yucky.
I start thinking all sorts of crazy things.I find myself doubting my abilities and if I am respected as a fellow photographer. I think maybe I should just forget about photography all together. Of course I know I can't. It is like breathing to me.
So forgive me for my brief wallowing in self pity time. I hope to back to my happy go lucky self and get out shooting in nature soon.
