As with many things these days, I am a bit late to the party. Let me be the last person to wish you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. While 2014 saw many positive events for me, it was as challenging a year as I’ve yet had. I’m a pretty open book and tend to speak candidly here as I have found this blog to be a collective journey in many ways, and on top of that, a bit of a personal diary in that I can vent, ramble on and air my praise or frustration to the ether, while sharing with the community that frequently stops by to keep me company. In a weird way, that is supposed to be a thank you for stopping by. Thank you for reading my ongoing ramblings and thank you for the continued interaction and support. I love photography, I love writing, and this blog enables me to do both. If it were not for you, I’d just as soon be talking to a brick wall about my passions which of course would quickly pin me as a crazy person, so thank you for allowing me to hide that from my friends, wife and children.
