Time has a way of slipping away.
I got an email from a client/friend inquiring if we were ok, since my normal blogging hiatus was about 2 weeks, and I’ve been off of the blogosphere for over a month.
Well, we’re fine and time flies, especially when we’re running from event to event non stop, since September 26.
It’s one of the ironies of life that when one wants more, one gets less, and when one wants less, it gets piled on. And, of course, being self employed, it’s almost impossible to turn down work, so here’s a recap of the last month, beginning with our Badlands workshop, where we had some of the best light and shooting conditions in years:
After a few days at home, the last month was pretty much a blur.
We were very lucky with weather for our Fall Color Riot tour in NH:
Immediately after our NH workshop, we met up with friend and co-leader for our Maine Lighthouse tour 2015, Jack Kennealy, to scout out locales and accommodations for our Sept, 2015 Tour.
Then for the big Kahona in Cape Cod where we filmed an instructional DVD with MasterPhotoWorkshops producer and videographer, Greg McKean, due for release April, 2015. I was able to grab a few shots during our scouting:
We have a Cape Cod workshop in the works Oct, 2015. Email Susan to be placed on our notification list.
Finally, I had a great time at the Mike Moats macro conference in Seekuk, then a talk to a large and fun group in Lynn, MA, before heading to NYC.
After an “off” day visiting the Frick Collection and the Met with friends, Mark and Michele Menditto, I’ll be at Photo Expo NY on Thursday, Oct 30, only, and will be at the Hunts Booth #474 from 11-12 selling and signing books from my Fine Art Photography series. If you’re there, stop by and say hello!
I bought my first non Nikon lens in a couple of decades, the Tamron 160-600. I was talking to Gary about it during a trip to the Hunts store in Melrose and he had one that was not claimed, so I bought it immediately. So far, after only a few shots, I’m blown away, but will be wringing it out during our westward swing. Look for a blog post on my site and on the Hunts website after Santa Fe. Am I still shooting the Fuji system? You bet! It’s the only system I’m taking to Cuba in Jan.
So much for paring down.
Thanks for taking the time and I hope to see you at PhotoExpo tomorrow.
