  1. Hmm, somehow this post flew in under my radar. I'd been watching to see how you'd approach your awards show. I'll clean the bathroom if you'll attend to the birthings!

    No, I really wanted to comment on your #7. It seems like we all struggle periodically. You and I were each cheering Kirk's writing recently when he didn't feel so sure. You're uncertain of yourself behind your camera right now. Go look at any number of blog posts, some familiar, some new. I can't point to many on which the blogger doesn't suffer some angst sometimes and says so. I think the suffering is part of the package - it's what makes the "perfect" photo, essay, etc. so memorable.

  2. Thank you. post will be forthcoming. I like where you going with your photography. you seem to branching out frominto different areas such as the city views you will post tomorrow.

  3. les-i'll cop to the angst, and i decline to suffer. uncertainty is part of the game, most assuredly. i'll be damned if i'll make myself miserable over something that is so much fun!

    tag-you're welcome. you deserve it!

    okatb-dude, read the directions !:)

  4. Almost missed this. Interesting list. I'm going through a lull, snag, lapse in posting prowess. I think we'll both get a lift with the weather or daylight savings change.
