After an unannounced sabbatical that involved re-evaluating my vision for my photography, my open-source workflow, and my choice of camera gear, I am back to generating content for this blog.
I traveled quite a bit.
My trips to Japan and Yosemite National Park were very instrumental in helping me “get my groove back”. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a class/walking tour hosted by the Ansel Adams Studio located in the park. I was able to walk in the steps of one of the truly great masters of photography and I hope a little of his wisdom rubbed off on me. The majestic peaks and waterfalls of Yosemite were truly inspiring.
Tokyo, Japan was a travel destination I had my entire life. It did not disappoint. The opportunities for street photography, travel images, and just amazing sights are endless. My beloved wife, who was hesitant about this trip (she has a rather “streamlined” dietetic profile – i.e she’s a picky eater) want to return with our adult children in the near future.
I got published.
During this “sabbatical” I managed to get published in the now defunct Linux Journal (Since 1994: The original magazine of the Linux Community). It’s not National Geographic, but a publishing credit is a publishing credit. On the bright side, there is nothing stopping me from letting you download the full issue with this clever little link.
Well, that’s about it for now.
