I haven’t taken any photos or carried my camera anywhere lately which is a such a change from the summer when I took photos every single day. Like most things, I think oversaturation led me wanting to put the camera down. It’s almost like I was living and doing stuff just to get an interesting photo. I didn’t want to miss capturing anything. I think the worst moment was when I brought the wrong camera battery charger on our West Coast trip this summer and I had a mild panic attack when I found out that I didn’t bring the right charger. As it turns out Cannon has about a dozen different batteries and chargers so I just couldn’t borrow one from someone with a Cannon camera. I hunted a charger down the next morning, drove to Best Buy and paid a premium price for a new universal charger (so hey, if you’re traveling with me, you can leave yours at home ’cause I can charge just about anything now, even in the car).
It feels good to leave the house with a lighter load and not be in photo taking mode all the time. You know, just living life and letting things happen without viewing it from behind a lens.
If I’m not around this space as often in the next few weeks (months) it’s because I just got slammed with work. Like scary freak out amounts of work from 3 different clients. I realized that blogging is contributing to my general lack of sleep since I often won’t start writing till midnight. Some posts are quick, but others take hours to write. I really need to learn how to sleep more. That said, I think I might be ready to take some photos again.
