It’s 2014.

It’s been awhile since I last blogged.

I can say that the past year hasn’t been easy, but with hard work, I have made the switch to become a photographer. Well….so to speak. I still have a lot to learn. I have transitioned from an internship to a paying job, to two paying jobs both of which are in the field of photography, and then making the tough decision to leave one of them. I have learned a lot in the past year.

What I’m looking forward to the most is accomplishing a lot more. I must first set them and then achieve them by meeting expectations. I’ll start by getting around to editing those photos I’ve always wanted to use for my portfolio and then creating an official website. In the mean time, let’s be realistic. I still need a job to get me by so I can pay bills. The next goal after those ones are to go out and network. While I have networked in the past, I should set out a clearer path as to how I will make my passion a successful business. That means putting in place strategies. I have relied on others to help me. I really should get a handle on what I want to do. Not let people tell me how it should be. I still need to pay the bills and keep maintenance on the equipment I use to get the job done. It’s a learning curve, yes. I’m scared, yes. But the one thing I fear more than anything is not trying and later wondering what could have been instead of knowing what I have accomplished down the road.

So today is New Year’s Day. It is also Wednesday and I saw a post on Facebook where it’s labelled Wisdom Wednesday. (I also know it as Way Back Wednesday.) In keeping with the theme, I’ve added some photos to start the year on a positive note. These could easily fall under Motivational Monday also. If you’ve been around Southern Ontario in recent weeks, these photos were taken in the aftermath of the ice storm. I’ve added some inspirational quotes to them.
