The past couple of years has been challenging, to say the least. With both of our fathers passing away between May 2015 and April of 2016, Juli and I had found ourselves spending a lot of our spare time being caretakers and doing what we could to help out our respective families. With things getting back to normal (albeit a “new normal”) our lives have begun to return to status quo. Life at Interrupt has also slowed down, thus lessening the time I was putting in working on the weekends and after-hours.
As I mentioned in my post from last week (see Urban Explorer and Regional Adventurer), I’m going to start making more decisions that are directly related to what I want to experience in life. Photography has been on my to-do list for years and I figured that there was no better time than now to take the plunge and try my hand at it. And after speaking with a colleague, Dave Hochanadel, my brother-in-law who are both savvy amateur photographers, I settled on the Nikon D5300 and its respective lenses and accessories as my first foray into the world of amateur photography.
As I venture out into the community and go on weekend excursions, I’ll be documenting my observations both in words and imagery. It’s my hope that as I read, practice and continue to grow in my craft, that my passion and experience will show through in my photographs. I can’t say that I’ve ever been one to have a hobby so I’m admittedly excited to see what I can capture from behind the lens.
