Has It Been This Long?

by on January 5, 2020

Howdy folks! My last blog post is from August 2018, which feels ridiculous considering I have a couple of dozen post in drafts. Whoopsie daisy, right? It happens. Life happens.

There have been many changes in my photographic and podcast world in the last 15 months or so – some were incredibly difficult to process, but necessary to make. I summarized the reasons why I was leaving our podcast back in episode 217 of STWSM (re: health reasons); a decision I did not take lightly.

My last show … episode 219

Moving on …

My field time has also been drastically impacted over the years due to an ongoing injury. This is where the life happens bit comes into play. Regardless of those changes, I felt the need to knock on the door of the blogging world of photographers, wrangle up the wayward dust bunnies and remind myself it’s time to get back to my site. This site was to represent my absolute love for photography and the need to create. I am on a mission to thoughtfully seek out what to do with my site to best suit my needs and navigate my way towards a happy medium … for now.

How photography, in particular the art of photography, appeals to me as a woman needing to be creating something has changed; in part from many years co-hosting a photography podcast, but also because I have changed as a person. Thus, it is only natural how I feel about photography has evolved as well.

“The old dreams were good dreams; they didn’t work out but I’m glad I had them.” – Robert Kincaid, Bridges of Madison County.

While I may no longer be co-hosting Shutter Time with Sid and Mac, the podcast is still going strong thanks to Mac’s dedication and passion for the show. He has since found a new co-host in 2019, his wife, Kasia, which feels to be a natural change and direction for the show. You can check out the rebranded Shutter Time podcast on Apple Podcasts or your podcatcher of choice. Mac and Kasia are doing a wonderful job with the show and seem to enjoy adding podcasting to their photographic journey together!

Thanks to those who have followed along with my journey over the years and have stayed in touch since my leaving the show. I will be back in the podcasting world soon enough … when it’s time.
