Yeah, yeah, I know its been awhile since I've been here. I hope to get back in the swing of things shortly. The number one thing that would help this is decent weather. Its correct that a true photographer braves all weather to get the shot. But, I think that mainly pertains to a "paid" photographer. So I am, therefore, exempt. Time has also been in short supply due to various things going on. And lets not forget our wonderful dependance on foreign fossil fuels. I have definitely curtailed the photo excursions I like to go on after dinner or early morning. So there are no excuses in the future, I have been working very hard on photography aspects that should make the above "excuses" a moot point. I am presently studying, through books, websites, videos, and experimentation the world of "flash" photography. And a whole other world it is. No postings yet of aforementioned flash shots, but the day will come. To do what I want to do takes a lot of study, experimenting, and some gear which I am only able to acquire through time. But, I'm getting there. Anyway, for now, here is a shot from last week catching a really cool sunset.
