Photographic slices of existence

I'm still debating on what to do with this journal going forward. It is a great incentive to get out and shoot, which is important to me. I'm not sure that I'm challenging myself photographically right now, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. For the time being, I'm taking it off hold and planning to resume daily photo posts. I think I'm going to do some more work with film, as I have a range of film cameras and other gear that doesn't see nearly enough use.

While I miss seeing your pretty pictures, if posting them has begun to feel like a chore I'd understand why you want to stop. I'd much prefer you posting pics because "OMG this one is so beautiful I have to share it with the world". If it's not fun, than why do it?

I've always maintained this journal to address some need in my life. Originally, it was more of a tool to keep distant friends involved in my life as well as a way to help organize my thoughts. It definitely got away from me though, and turned into a rather silly.. I don't even know how to describe it. I don't think I quite stooped to twitter shitter proportions, but I certainly was immortalizing details of my life which did not deserve such treatment.

Once in a while, posting daily does feel like a bit of a chore. On the other hand, I'm interested in becoming more prolific as an artist, and long-term perhaps engaging in other projects that need regular updates. I'm also my own worst critic most days, so if I only ever posted the photos I absolutely love, I wouldn't be putting much out at all. As such, it forces me to be a bit more pragmatic and less of a perfectionist.

Anyway, there's a few of the thoughts rambling through my mind these days.
