Staying Curious

Welcome to my new blog. I’ve been planning on getting back into blogging for some time now, but with a photographic focus this time around. I’ve been blogging on and off for over ten years, so I kind of know what I’m doing, but I won’t trouble you with my past writings today. Perhaps at a later date I’ll link them. For now, a fresh start.

I plan to write here about my take on the craft of photography. This will range from thoughts on making images, learning new techniques, linking to other photographers and their thoughts, experimenting with new gear, thinking about copyright and other legal issues, admiring artists of all forms, raising awareness of the natural world, and trying new technology. And it will certainly involve a lot of trial and error, personal discovery, and doing things that I’ll hopefully look back on down the road, shake my head, and chuckle. But, you have to start somewhere.

I don’t think I was smarter than them and I certainly wasn’t more talented. And I definitely can’t claim I was a harder worker — I’ve never worked particularly hard, I’ve always just tried doing things I find fun. Instead, what I concluded was that I was more curious […]

I kept being curious and just followed my curiosity.

There are so many places to explore, so many beautiful things to see, and so many images to capture in our big wild world.

I hope to stay curious here, and I invite you along for the ride.
