Scattered, Smothered, and Covered

Brittany, Torso Study  #140


I suppose it’s a classic case of needing a vacation from my vacation. As the title of this re-entry into my blog implies, my vacation from photography has left me feeling surprisingly overwhelmed. Not to worry though; not all was for naught.

Slight feelings of suffocation aside, I’m happy to report the ‘vacay’ served its purpose. A lot has happened during my time away, episodes of both loss and gain. For these reasons, I readily confess that I’m still very much in a re-grouping but surprisingly optimistic state of mind, all things considered.

Creative passions have been renewed. Let’s see what I can do with these revitalized emotions and visions; let’s see where they take me, and where and in what direction they take the work.

I’m happy to be back, and I hope those friends and acquaintances I’ve come to know here are happy to see me once again. ‘Next time’ is here.

    Great to see you back Bill, I have been through a few of these vacations myself but I always seem to come back. In my case the ideas start to creep back in, trickle at first and then free flow again and that is a a tap on the shoulder reminding you where you belong.
