Looking Ahead

It has been a busy year and now that I am just a day over a year older, I have had a few minutes to look back.  This year has not been as prolific as I had hoped for my photography.  I have been busy with life which sometimes has a way of dictating how much time you have to pursue the things you love.  I have not had the opportunity to pick up the camera as much as I had liked this year, but I plan on changing that soon.  I have some strategies to make more time, and projects to pursue that will hopefully enable me to prosper and grow as a photographer – Looking ahead – John Masters  http://www.johnmasters.net/

This time of year, I get the wanderlust for places abroad.  Ever since I was a young man there has been something comforting about being in a warm jacket somewhere in a city in Europe, walking about with no destination or itinerary.  A lot of people have experienced this phenomenon in their lives. But for those who have not, I have something to show you.  This is how it looks from my perspective when I am doing that thing I love to do on those cold nights in cities that are not my own. – John Masters

It happens from time to time, especially when you are creating.  Some form of writers block or whatever the same thing means for photographers.  Basically, you lose interest in shooting, or the camera itself.  This has happened to me in the past but usually in the winter months.  It has been several months since I have taken an active interest in pulling the shutter.  Slowly though it is coming back to me and I expect to be doing my thing again. – John Masters
