So where the heck have I been? Lost in the wilds of South Delta? Nope. Abducted by aliens? Nope again. Kidnapped and seduced by Zoot, Dingo and the maidens of Castle Anthrax? Sadly, no.
Life just got really busy for a while. I have a demanding job, a long daily commute, two little boys that expect (rightly) lots of daddy time, animals to take care of, yard work to do…you know the drill. Basically I have only a couple of hours every week to devote to personal interests like photography.
Then in September I decided it was time to deal with some of the chaos in the back storage room. I moved everything out and started building shelves. Then I used the new space to build a tiny shop area. Of course a shop needs to be full of tools, so I began a rather expended tool shopping binge. And of course, I started a number of woodworking projects. I have to admit it was a real pleasure to finally have a place to work with my hands and build things.
The next thing I knew I hadn’t picked up my camera or blogged for months. But my photography was always in the back of my mind. I knew I’d get back to it once the shop mania finally burned out.
Well, last week I needed to take some photos of walrus ivory carvings for a report I’m publishing. I pulled out my camera gear and was surprised by how good it felt to start shooting again.
And now spring is, well, springing! The cherry trees are in blossom, flowers are sprouting…and I have had to start mowing the grass. Pretty soon I’ll start seeing critters to photograph.
I can’t wait…
Spring has sprung
The grass is riz
I wonder where them bugsies is?
