Hello? Is Anybody Still Out There?

How has it been so long since I have posted anything?

I'd love to blame COVID, but it would be a big fat lie if I did.  The truth is that since I no longer have clients needing my time or a blog and FB business page needing content, I have allowed my photography to take a back seat to silly things like cleaning the toilet.

Ridiculous.  I know.  But, I'm a stickler for that darn "To Do List" and have a hard time breaking away to have a little fun.

So, what's a girl to do?

Sign up for two online photography classes to get her back in the game, that's what!

It's taken a long time, but I've finally come to accept two things about myself:  1. I will now and forever be an overachiever who needs external validation.  2. I'm pretty good at honoring commitments I make to other people but not so great at keeping those I make to myself.

So, in that regard...

I am taking an online Nature and Landscaping Course and an online Travel Photography Course through New York Institue of Photography.  I have 18 months to finish the courses, and at the end I will get a certificate of completion for each one.  I am going to resurrect the blog to share my assignment photos along the way.  I am asking everyone who knows me, either IRL or online, to hold me accountable!  If weeks have gone by with no photos showing up on here, somebody start nagging me.  Seriously!

I am hoping the combination of signing up for official classes and publicly declaring my intentions will get my head out of the toilet, so to speak, and get me back to doing something that I truly love yet never seem to make time for on my own.

Stay Tuned!
